BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT
NAPA Auto Parts

Although the address has changed three times, NAPA Auto Parts has been a part of Headland’s downtown business community on the square for more than 45 years.

spotlight-david-and-mary-rileyDavid and Mary RileyOwned by David and Mary Riley, NAPA services most of the local auto repair shops and carries a full line of automotive parts and parts for industrial and agricultural equipment.

“Our biggest challenge right now is space. We’d like to expand the business,” David said, “if we do, it will stay right here on the square.”

Gerald Wright and C.C. “Spud” Shelley opened the business in ‘68. David’s father, Dan Riley, bought the business in ‘71 and operated as Dixie Parts & Equipment. David basically grew up in the business, he said, “I was adamantly against joining the family business.” He and Mary both graduated from Headland High School. After 4 ½ years in the Navy, David moved back to work alongside his father and then purchased the business in ‘96.

Mary graduated in accounting from Troy-Dothan and worked at Westside Terrace for nine years in social services before joining David to do NAPA’s bookkeeping and customer service. They have two children, Rhyan, 17, and Brianna, 10.

When asked what’s their favorite thing about owning a business in Headland, the Riley’s quickly replied, “The people.”

*NAPA Auto Parts is located on the square at 21 Park St. They are open Mon.-Fri. 7am-5:30pm; Sat. 7am-3pm. 693-2889
