Arnold Motor Supply, LLP

About Arnold Motor Supply, LLP

In 1927, E.P. Arnold, saw a future in the automobile parts industry.. As he watched the popularity of the automobile increase, he knew that there would be a market for replacement parts. Although he did not know much about automobiles, Mr. Arnold built a box for the back of a 1927 Chevrolet. Mechanic friends helped him select about $65 worth of parts that garages would need. He tacked up a price list and traveled around Northwest Iowa. With $300 savings and a $200 loan, our company was born. In 1931, he opened the first branch auto parts store in Marshall, Minnesota. In that same year, the Spencer fire destroyed the original store which was promptly rebuilt.
