Interstate Batteries chairman recognizes Goodnight’s 51 years of service

Millard Goodnight of Goodnight’s Service located at 5213 Mooresville Rd. Salisbury was recognized by Norm Miller, chairman of Interstate Batteries, for his 51 years of continuous sales and service as an Interstate Battery dealer.

Goodnight’s Service was set up in 1965 by Miller when he was calling on accounts for Walter Lentz, the distributor in North Carolina. Miller wrote, “I just wanted to write and thank you for your 51 years of continuous sales and service as an Interstate dealer. During that time, I’ve raised a couple kids who have kids of their own — I even have a great-grandson — and all the while you have been selling our Interstate batteries there in Salisbury, N.C.! WOW!

“During your time as a dealer, we’ve also grown as a company from selling about 400,000 batteries per year when I set you up in the mid 1960s to over 17,000,000 per year now all across North America and beyond. We could not have become No. 1 in sales of replacement batteries since 1990 were it not for loyal Interstate dealers like you!”
