My Own Downtown - Performance Auto Salesin Business Features
Memories are set in our minds when they are linked to special places. As Kris Valdez drives by Bunning Park, he is transported into the past. “Seeing my dad in concert was something I always enjoyed,” he expressed. His father, Bill was a well-known local performer who delighted the community with his musical talents. “With the free concerts, a playground, a gazebo and picnic tables, Bunning Park will always have a huge impact in Downtown,” Kris pointed out. “It has on me as I grew up. Lots of special memories started there and there will be many more for many people.”
Kris is continuing his father’s professional tradition as a specialist in auto performance upgrades and the Owner of Performance Auto and Truck Accessories. “My dad was a huge influence on me,” Kris shared. “We were super close. Carrying the torch here at the shop just makes sense.” He added, “I like seeing customers happy after seeing a total transformation of their cars.”
As a second-generation small business owner, it’s important to him to apply his father’s simple recipe for success. “He’s always said, ‘take care of your customers and stay on top of the hustle,’” Kris said. “And do the best you can."
As a local automotive dealer and truck accessory shop, Performance Auto & Truck Accessories offer the best selection of pre-owned vehicles, the best service, and the best prices. Kris hopes that more people will shop local. “It’s important to keep the money in Sweetwater County, not overseas,” he stated. “Seeing the businesses get renovated and property improvements is really exciting,” Kris mentioned. “There are hard-working people who want to make a difference in Downtown.” …And that’s what makes Downtown Rock Springs My Own Downtown.
