Our Community

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


This weekend, AIM Used Auto Parts was invited to the Annual dinner for The Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce. We ate, drank, and mingled with fellow business owners.

A speaker at the annual dinner spoke about the history of our great city of Riverview.  The speech gave us a new found appreciation for the city we live & work in. We really are surrounded by great people and our city is growing so rapidly.

Here are some fun facts about the Riverview area:

-    This past year, Riverview was ranked #67 Best Places to live by Money magazine. http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bestplaces/2012/snapshots/PL1260950.html

-    The Alafia River that flows through Riverview is translated as "River of Fire" due to the phosphorus on the early river bottom glowing at night.

-     Riverview’s population has grown +490.4% since 2000. (Source)

The annual dinner was a great time and we’re looking forward to more Chamber and community events!
