GUALO RAI Saipan —Mid-Pac Micronesia which does business as NAPA Auto Parts will move in May to a bigger location in San Jose from its present site in Gualo Rai.

Vincent J.T. Chiguina general manager told the Journal that the decision to re-locate was made in 2005 and was based on efforts to accommodate the dealership’s major fleets.
