Auto Plus and Pep Boys have continued to grow their store footprint with the recent acquisition of Hapi Auto Parts, a two-store business in Hillsborough and Lebanon, New Jersey, and the opening of a new Auto Plus corporate-owned store in Christiansburg, Virginia, a suburb of Roanoke.
Serving their communities for more than 36 years, Hapi Auto Parts, led by the Nunn family, offers a full line of foreign and domestic auto parts. Rick, Dale and Jason Nunn, alongside their 20 dedicated employees, will continue to serve customers as their two locations become corporate-owned Auto Plus stores.
“Hapi Auto Parts is known for providing great customer service and the right parts to their loyal base of wholesale and retail clients, which will continue as they become part of the Auto Plus and Pep Boys store network in the area,” said Auto Plus and Pep Boys President and CEO Brent Windom. “This acquisition increases our density in one of the company’s top target markets, which already includes eight Auto Plus corporate-owned stores and a Pep Boys Supercenter.”
Windom continued, “The Christiansburg, Virginia, corporate-owned Auto Plus location will help us aggressively grow our commercial and wholesale business in the region. It allows us to serve independently owned stores and service centers with an extensive parts inventory backed by an established Roanoke-based Auto Plus hub.
“We are very excited about these new locations joining our growing family of stores,” added Windom. “With these additions, and the previously announced purchase of Leicester Auto Parts in Asheville, North Carolina, last month, along with other future acquisitions and greenfield openings, we are continually executing our rapid growth strategy.”
