My name is Chris Brown and I'd like to personally welcome you to Subaru of Puyallup. As an active owner of Subaru of Puyallup it has been my goal to create an environment for our customers and employees that is like no other store. When we say "Stress Free" it's not just a tag line. It's our goal to provide you with the best and most "Stress Free" vehicle purchase of your life. Furthermore, I want you to feel that same experience each time you come back to have your vehicle serviced. I am happily married and the father of three wonderful children.
