Why Shop Small?

Why Shop Small Business?

Over the years, we have been privileged enough to serve as host to numerous car clubs and car enthusiasts from throughout the state, country and even the world. The most frequently asked question that we get at TCRC is "why should we buy from Twin Cities Rod & Custom verses an online competitor?” The answer to us is easy!

As most of you know, we are a small store in a small town but we are more than that, we are the oldest speed equipment shop i...n the state and that is a title that we take very seriously. We feel that we have the opportunity to provide more than just parts to our customers. TCRC is proud to give back to the hot rod community by sponsoring car shows and cruises throughout the state, our staff and staff family members volunteer at shows such as MSRA’s Back to the 50’s, the Marigold Days Car Show and the upcoming Pine Island Saturday Nights, and we also donate products and gift certificates to clubs to be used as door prizes at dozens of shows and cruises.

But we don’t just stop there. TCRC is very involved with the growth of its adopted town of Pine Island, MN. TCRC’s owner holds a position in the Pine Island Area Chamber of Commerce, TCRC sponsors various extracurricular programs with the Pine Island School from trap shooting to football to music programs, and donates funds to different projects that are necessary to improve the quality of life in and around the Pine Island area.

Today, we are giving you a closer look at the ways that we try to give back to the hotrod world and to the world that surrounds us. What sets us apart from our online competitors? Real people trying to make a real difference and it is only possible because of our great customers!
