In September 2021, Auto-Wares Group of Companies combined two part store locations, Auto Value Hartford and Auto Value Coloma located in SW Michigan, into one Auto Value Parts Store, now located in downtown Watervliet.
Prior to Auto Value Parts Store moving in, it was an unused, unkept building that was hurting the city’s image and a major eye sore to the community. Now, the building is cleanly kept, with a fresh coat of paint, new store signs, and a recoated driveway.
The Auto Value Watervliet Parts Store can be found at 320 W. Main St, Watervliet, MI, placing it right in Downtown Watervliet next to restaurants, markets, florists, Ace Hardware, the City Hall, and Watervliet Veteran’s Park.

The Watervliet store team does a fantastic job staying involved in the community. The storefront is used through the holidays with window decorating contests, holiday decorations, and live mannequin display contests. They also participate in local car shows, parades, Halloween trick-or-treating, and more!
In Fall 2022, Tyler Dotson, Watervliet City Manager, and Deah Muth, Watervliet Mayor, presented Auto Value with the 2022 Community Investment Award in recognition and appreciation for the ongoing service to their community! Susie, Assistant Store Manager, and Tory B., District Manager, proudly accepted the award.
The Auto Value Watervliet Parts Store team includes Carlos, Suzie, Ron H., Jimmy, George, Karen, Justin, Robin, Clover, Ron W., and Cecil!
