This is good news for all existing Sunset Auto Parts charge account holders, as well as for existing account holders at the above store locations (formally of Emerald Valley Auto Parts). You now have the ability to use your charge account at any of our sixteen locations in Oregon and Washington. If you held an account with Emerald Valley, you now automatically hold an account with us.
Returns (in reasonable resale condition and accompanied by a receipt) are accepted in any of Sunset’s 16 locations.

Did you know that Sunset recycles waste oil in four of our locations? We have waste oil burning furnaces in these four stores: Aloha, Seaside, and Scappoose, Oregon along with Castle Rock, Washington. Those are four places you can bring your used motor oil (dino-blood, and synthetic!) for proper, efficient recycling!
We know that disposing of oil is one big obstacle in choosing whether to change your own oil or to have a shop do it. Well, if you’re
Here at Sunset Auto Parts, we strive to be engaged with community events. We support youth sports, auto racing, community festivals and events, and community service efforts in every city we’re a part of. It’s a great way for us to stay connected, and a great way to support the strong communities we’re a part of here in the Pacific Northwest. We now have the privilege of sharing with you a community partnership that has international ties.

We’ve recently become supporters of a project spearheaded by Darlene Hess, Sunset’s long-time fearless leader of finances and payroll, and a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Scappoose, Oregon. The project brings together the member’s of Darlene’s church community with a sister church in Western Kenya. Please watch this short video to learn how Darlene is helping to connect our community with a group in Kenya to provide children with hens. It’s a local effort with positive international implications, check it out!
If you’d like to participate, donate, or learn more about this project contact Darlene by calling the Sunset Main Office at 503-543-5095. There is a also a Kenya Hen Project Facebook Page.
Here at Sunset Auto Parts, we strive to deliver the finest products available in the automotive aftermarket. This effort goes far beyond our behind-the-counter parts knowledge. We perform some field research on our products to learn how they’re manufactured, and how that process affects our customers. This helps us ensure a high base level of quality and increases our company’s understanding of why a certain product might fail prematurely. That’s not something we like to see.
Recently, Sunset Founder and CEO Barry Hess toured a Wix Filter manufacturing facility just outside of Charlotte North Carolina. The facility is one of the premier manufacturers of air and oil filters on the planet and supplies NAPA Sunset with a huge variety of quality filters. He examined every process from filter element production to painting of the canisters, ducked under some giant robot arms, and talked shop with workers making the actual products.
Now that’s some NAPA Know How.
Automotive experts on the tour learned about ever part of the complex filter manufacturing process.
The massive facility is state of the art, and photography is only allowed in limited areas to prevent leaking trade secrets.

If you’re one of our valued customers in a city other than Longview, you may not be aware that we have a new facility in this port city. It’s great being a part of this vibrant, historical community and we’re pleased that we now offer a shining new facility to best serve our customers. If you’re a regular customer at this store, you know how excited we are to be in this new building that is stuffed to the ceiling with parts. If you haven’t seen the facility and find that you’re passing through, come on in, say hello, and we’ll show you around.
Big changes are afoot for the NAPA Sunset family of stores. NAPA Seaside is slated to open at this new location on September 23rd! Now, NAPA Seaside will feature a premium location to compliment our premium auto parts sales and services.
We love being a part of the beautiful community here in Seaside, Oregon and we’re excited to continue to grow along with the community of local businesses. With the opening of the new location, Sunset will boast one of the finest, best supplied, most knowledgeably staffed auto parts stores in the coastal northwest.

We all had a great time at the 1st annual Sunset Auto Parts NAPA Drag Day!
We had 40 racers from Cowlitz, Clatsop, Columbia and Washington Counties and many spectators converge on Woodburn Drag Strip Friday, July 19th.
The day started at 8:30am and after several cars were checked-in we started making passes about 9:30. Everybody had several chances to run their times and pick their dial-in before elimination bracket racing started. The field was divided into street-tire class and slicks. After each round of eliminations the losers were encouraged to line up again and we ran grudge races between eliminations to keep everyone entertained.
By 2:00pm we were down to the final (King of the Valley) it was Andy Harris in his 69 Dodge GTX 440 from Aloha against Mike Steward in his 51 ford hot rod pickup “shop truck” from Hillsboro. Andy Harris ended up taking the big Trophy. We want to thank Woodburn Dragstrip for being such good hosts and ensuring all racers had a safe and fun experience. Sunset Auto Parts and NAPA Portland appreciate all our customers and thank them for making it possible for us to get away for a day and have some fun. Next year we hope to make this event bigger and better. We already have plans to add 2 new classes Motorcycle and Diesel Trucks.
