Parts – the difference between Good, Better and Best!

Published

2 minute read

This month we want to talk about parts.

Your GM vehicle is a finely tuned piece of machinery, and while it’s designed to run beautifully right from the factory, parts will wear out over time. We know you’ve probably heard the old saying “parts is parts” and maybe you’re thinking that there’s really no difference when it comes to what parts you use.

When it comes to parts, you’ve probably heard the name ACDelco. What you may not know, is that ACDelco provides GM with Factory Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts for all of their vehicles and manufactures parts to fit most other makes and models. When it comes time to replace those parts, Kipp Scott GMC’s Parts Department has choices from good, to better, to best.

First, the Good, ACDelco Advantage. These parts are designed to fit both your GM vehicle and your budget. From Brakes to Wiper Blades and everything in between, Advantage products offer fit, form and function for most makes and models, but a more attractive price. This provides a competitively priced, quality alternative to unbranded aftermarket components.

Next, the Better, ACDelco Professional. These are the parts that you’ll find being used in the shop when higher quality is demanded but cost is a factor. The Professional category of high-quality aftermarket products covers most GM vehicles as well as many other makes and models.

Finally, the Best! GM Original Equipment. OE parts replace those installed during the production of a GM vehicle and are designed to meet or exceed original equipment specifications. Kipp Scott has access to the ACDelco portfolio of more than 33,000 parts that fall into this category.

In closing, parts matter, and Kipp Scott GMC’s Parts department works with your needs and budget to provide the parts you need to keep your ride rolling!

Food Truck Drive Thru giving local food trucks a chance at operating this year. Local support has been overwhelming!

Published on

 

Last weekend 4 food trucks tested their operations in a drive thru format to see if there was a chance for them to operate this year with the restrictions set out by the government. Much like other businesses, the food truck vendors were overwhelmed with how they were going to operate their seasonal business or face the potential loss of their business for good.

After seeing the event held in Calgary, some local vendors got together to try out the format and bring new hope to a potentially dismal summer. “We thought we might lose our business this year, but it looks like our fellow Red Deerians have our back!” said John Moore from The Hungry Beast. Over 100 cars were through the drive thru within the first hour on Saturday and local community support continued to Mother’s Day.

All vendors and their staff must ensure they follow guidelines set out by Alberta Health, including all customers staying in their cars and no parking permitted on site. While this format doesn’t allow for the usual summertime feeling of street vendors, music and community events, it is a great safe activity to provide customers with their food favorites and experience a bit of social interaction outside of the house.

“Customers are able to support local small businesses and get quality homemade food within the convenience of their own cars. We look forward to next weekend and making this a regular occurrence” says Nicole Pugh, The Streatery.

Another event is scheduled for this May long weekend in hopes of supporting more business for the vendors and giving local community members something safe and fun to do. Additional information regarding vendors, menus, and event details can be found on the Facebook page: Food Truck Drive Thru RD
