“The Langley, BC store has been open a week and so far the response has been great,” said Brad Gilbert, Regional Manager for Western Canada. “People walk through the doors and their eyes grow wide. It’s a harder core 4×4 crowd here in Langley and the new store design has been very well-received.”
4 Wheel Parts store showrooms are being updated with state-of-the-art interactive displays and increased inventory onsite including suspension systems and truck wheels. New locations are providing local off-road fans a first time look at the future of the off-roading industry.
