Interstate Batteries Dealer Gives Doggone Good Service
Schpeen, which is East Side Detroit slang for “best friend,” is their canine behind the counter. Over the years, they have had a series of multi-talented rescue dog “employees” that have proved to be a real incentive for customers to keep coming back. In fact, some tell sales associate Patty Bach repeatedly, “I go there to see the dog!”
Patty said, “I can honestly say that Schpeen’s presence in the store has driven sales up.”
Schpeen works six days a week and never calls in sick. On a normal day, you’ll see him retrieving everything from spark plugs to brake fluid—and receiving tips along the way. In his eight years at the store, he has earned more than $700 in tips, all of which get donated to the Detroit Humane Society.
The only parts Schpeen can’t retrieve are the batteries. Select Auto Parts has sold Interstate exclusively for more than 40 years. Patty said, “I personally think Interstate is one of the best batteries.”
Good boy, Schpeen! Thanks for making the customers’ battery buying experience one in a million.
