Cody Frank is a busy man these days.
After announcing in August that he was planning to move Two Rivers Irrigation from Ewing to Neligh and build a brand-new building for the business, he also announced the purchase of Carquest from the Kneivel family.
"I worked with a partner of mine in the business that was involved in some other Carquest stores and as we were coming to Neligh and getting our building laid out, we thought it would be a good time to add something else in," Frank said. "Carquest had made a good partnership for him in some other towns he was involved in and it will make a good partnership here too."
Carquest will move from its current location to the new site of Two Rivers Irrigation on Highway 275, between Elkhorn Rural Public Power and Green Line Equipment. The site is currently still under construction.
"The Carquest stuff and irrigation stuff will be combined," explained Frank. "It'll all be mixed together in the show room. It'll each have it's own area there."
He said all of the current employees from both Two Rivers and Carquest will be kept on staff in the new business.
Frank said the current plan is to move everything into the new facility some time in January with plans for an open house in late February.
