Select, Select Rentals for all your building needs!

Select Rentals has been in business since 2010, before then it was known as CAT Rentals.
The atmosphere at Select Rentals is welcoming, whether you are a hard working business man or a gardening granny.
The manager Bob Langenhahn greets you with a warm smile and a “Hey, how you doin’!”. In the off chance he is out of the office, Kelly Blaikie will be there to help you in any way he can.
The conversation starts off with events of the past week, talk of aching bones, new developments around town, hockey and plans of a holiday so far away.
Bob Cropley, the new guy, at Select Rentals has the disposition of a no non-sense type of guy, you got business then lets do business.
Meeting this fine crew has made me appreciate the unique individuals in our town, and how lucky I am to see them once a week if not more at various locations throughout town.
It is a great day when I walk into Select Rentals and see the boys hard at work, helping clients, cleaning and maintaining all equipment.
At Select Rentals they go above and beyond, if you don’t know how to work it, they will show you, if you don’t know what this button does or that switch flip’s they will show you.
Come on down the coffee is always on!


Prairie Automotive proud to serve High Prairie and Area

Prairie Automotive & Industrial Supply Ltd. has been serving High Prairie for 44 years.
The store opened back in 1972 by Bob and Helen Paquette.
Bob had been travelling to the area for years, selling parts to local garages and saw a need for a parts store in High Prairie.
He and his wife moved their family to High Prairie and rented a small store behind IGA (pre Freson Bros.), which is now Northern Lakes College.
From there, the need for more inventory saw the store move to the old pool hall building down the street.
That location proved to be a good one, as they outgrew that location and in 1987, move to the old IGA building.
Space of 5,000 square feet provided a lot of growth for the store.
In, 1997, Bob and Helen decided to retire and sold the business to daughter Michelle and her husband Wade Zahacy.
Once again after 10 years, we were bursting at the seams, so we took on the renovation of the Old Crazy Horse Bar at the east end of town.
With 11,000 square feet, it is an open shopping experience, nice and bright with lots of room to grow.
The store has also gone through a few name changes with the main franchise.
It was originally known as UAP.
Then it changed to UAP/NAPA and today it is NAPA Auto Parts.
We strive to provide quality service, not only to the retail customer, but also to the garage customers in town and surrounding areas.
Our staff have been with us for a long time and are very knowledgeable in the industry.
If we don’t have the part in stock, we can order it and have it by the next day in most cases.
That provides valuable service when someone’s vehicle is broken down.
The business is open six days a week, Mondays to Fridays 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Thank you for providing us with the opportunity to serve you to the best of our knowledge, it is our pleasure!
