Pep Boys Announces Major Expansion
June 28, 2021—Pep Boys has big plans for the rest of 2021.
The company plans to open more than 20 locations across the country, remodel a third of its existing locations and is in the process of opening its first EV service center, according to a press release.
The push is part of its 100 year anniversary celebration, ushering in the next century of service.
“It’s fitting that Pep Boys is celebrating its centennial during one of the most transformative times in history of the automotive industry, and at the same time that customers’ purchasing power and preferences are shifting distinctly,” CEO Brian Kaner said in a statement. “Pep Boys may be 100 years old, but our business is more viable than ever, and we’re committed to ensuring we’re here to serve the customers and communities of the next century.”
Pep Boys plans to accelerate the expansion of its EV service offering through additional East and West Coast locations which are aligned with both Pep Boys footprint and the densest and fastest-growing U.S. EV markets.
