Pep Boys has opened new Service and Tire Centers in Astoria, New York; Lawndale and Rocklin, California; and LaGrange, Georgia, as part of its continued expansion to meet the high demand for automotive service. The new locations, which are near the metro centers of New York, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Atlanta, include both greenfield and acquisition properties. They were selected for their proximity to both individual and fleet customers that need convenient, local shops for service to reduce the time they’re without their vehicles.
“The demand for quality service is high, but so is the demand for convenience, and Pep Boys is a one-stop shop that can provide both for our customers,” said Brian Kaner, CEO-Service. “As automotive technology continues to evolve at a rapid rate, investments to expand our capabilities and our network, especially in densely populated areas, will enable us to provide better service to more customers. At the same time, it is the goal of every one of our shops to get to know their neighbors and become a trusted member of their local community.”
According to the Auto Care Association, the top three reasons Do-It-For-Me (DIFM) Service customers choose a shop are trust, a good prior experience and a convenient location. Pep Boys proudly offers customers quality service performed by ASE-certified technicians in nearly 1,000 locations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, including the four new Service and Tire Centers:
• Pep Boys Lawndale at 15820 Inglewood Ave., Lawndale, California
• Pep Boys Rocklin at 5880 Pacific St., #155, Rocklin, California
• Pep Boys LaGrange at 1472 Lafayette Parkway, LaGrange, Georgia
• Pep Boys Astoria, 41-15 19th St., Astoria, New York
Each local opening is celebrated with offers, events and other opportunities for customers to meet the new team and experience the updated service bays equipped with the latest technology.
