Tell us something we might not know about your business?

Our manager Chris Russell has been with K-Town Carquest for five years. What’s your favorite thing about doing business in Kremmling? Just the small town atmosphere. Knowing so many of your customers and being able to have a conversation with them and not just talk shop. Helping each other out when needed. How do you enjoy the Kremmling area when you’re not working? We love the outdoors. Hunting, camping, four-wheeling, snowmobiling. We always followed our kids everywhere doing sports. Kim continues to play softball, co-ed volleyball and has officiated volleyball for 28 years.

What else do you want Kremmling to know about your business?

We are an independent store with a friendly, knowledgeable staff that will go above and beyond. We offer great prices with quality. We’re always looking for new products and ways to improve and offer more.
