Global Auto Parts Website Gets a Makeover … Finally!

Global Auto Parts Logo

Ten years.  It’s hard to believe, but it’s been that long since our website has gotten a makeover.  We launched our first website in 2007, the same time we revealed a new company logo, as seen above.  Sure, we updated our web content over the years.  But it sported the same old layout for an entire decade.  Even I was getting sick and tired of looking at the same old Global Auto Parts website.   Needless to say, it was time for a change.  For kicks, below is a screenshot of our homepage of yesteryear.

Global Auto Parts Old Website

The original Global Auto parts home page that originally launched in 2007.

With over 50% of people going online via mobile device these days (are you?), it made sense to create a responsive, mobile-friendly website.  A fresh website with a simple yet functional responsive design was our goal.  It was fantastic to discover that DIY web design could be such a breeze with content management systems such as WordPress.  And the Zerif theme by ThemeIsle was perfect for our needs.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be possible to create and manage our own website without knowing jack-squat about HTML, PHP, or CSS coding.  It was just a matter of customizing the theme with our own content and images.  And the outcome was amazing.

At last, we’re thrilled to launch our newly redesigned website! It’s a work in progress, so please feel free to share any comments.  If you see something that doesn’t look quite right, give us a holler.  You might notice that our website is mainly an informational site describing our retail operation — and you are correct.  Our core business remains focused on serving the local community of Stockton and neighboring cities.  However, we do sell a number of parts and products globally through our eBay store.  Stay tuned for more updates as time goes on.  Thanks a million for stopping by to visit our site today!
