B&B Warehouse marks 45 years in Louisiana

March 10, 2015

Louisiana-based B&B Automotive Warehouse is celebrating its 45th anniversary. In recognition of the company’s founding, B&B will hold a two-day celebration that will include a vendor trade show and customer reception on March 20, 2015, and a day at the Baton Rouge Raceway on March 21, 2015, featuring Federated Auto Parts spokesman Kenny Schrader.

“B&B Automotive Warehouse has been a loyal Federated member for many years and, through its Blues Auto Parts stores, is the key supplier to Federated Car Care Centers throughout southern Louisiana,” says Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “We congratulate Lathan Alexander and his entire team on 45 years of outstanding service to their valued customers.”

On March 20, the anniversary celebration will commence with a vendor trade show and reception at the B&B distribution center in Gonzales, La. In the months leading up to this event, B&B customers could earn raffle tickets based on their purchases. Over $10,000 in prizes will be awarded to winning ticket holders at vendors’ booths and a grand prize drawing will also be held.

The following day, B&B customers will head to the Baton Rouge Raceway for a day of dirt track racing that will include Schrader driving the Federated dirt track car. They will also enjoy food, refreshments and door prizes, and will have the chance to spend time with Schrader in the B&B hospitality tent at the track.

“Our anniversary celebration is the perfect opportunity to thank our customers and vendor partners. Without them, we would not be celebrating such a major milestone. We consider them part of the B&B family,” said Lathan Alexander, president of B&B Automotive Warehouse. “We look forward to building upon these solid relationships and working together for a prosperous future for all."
