A.P. Motors – 50 Years in Riverstone

A.P Motors, 50 Years in Riverstone

Charlie Persak started his spare parts business 50 years ago from the family home in Creek Street. He moved to the current premises in Railway Terrace, leasing the building from Wally Wood and purchasing the building in the early 1970s. Charlie, Gwenda and Adam have opened the business seven days a week for the convenience of customers. Sadly, Charlie passed away recently, still operating the business that he loved.
