On Friday, March 16, city leaders and business representatives welcomed the new Firestone Complete Auto Care store at 17305-27th Ave. NE in Smokey Point with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The company presented several donations to community organizations as part of its introduction.
Store general manager Gerry McArthur presented a $500 donation to Senior Services of Snohomish County's Meals on Wheels Program, and $500 to the Marysville Boys and Girls Club.
The grand opening event included activities for guests all weekend, including a display of Bigfoot, the famous monster truck, a chance to spin a wheel for prizes from NAPA, Carquest and AutoZone, kids' fun with face painters and a balloon artist, and free lunch and refreshments.
The store also held a drawing to give away two 42" flat screen TVs, two Apple iPads, a set of tires, automotive services and more. All entries at the local store also qualify for a nationwide drawing to win a 2012 BMW or Audi sedan.
