PHILADELPHIA (June 2, 2005) — Pep Boys—Manny, Moe & Jack's 46 stores in the greater Philadelphia region will celebrate grand re-openings beginning June 4.
The stores, which have undergone renovations, showcase Pep Boys' commitment to revitalize its offering of automotive parts, tires, repair and maintenance services to its customers, the Philadelphia-based company said.
Pep Boys stores will run a special 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. sale on Saturday, June 4, as well as a celebratory sale in June in conjunction with the grand re-openings. The first 150 customers to visit each Philadelphia-area Pep Boys location on June 4 will receive a free $10 Pep Boys shopping card.
“All of our Philadelphia-area stores now feature bolder product displays that leverage our massive retail space, maximize sales per square foot, create a permanent space for exciting new product categories, including transportation and garage, and highlight the repair and maintenance service we provide in our 6,000 service bays,” said Pep Boys Chairman and CEO Larry Stevenson. “It's exciting to see the transformation of every store here in our hometown market. Customer response has been very positive as a result of our previous grand re-openings and we expect a similar response from our loyal Philadelphia customers.”
Pep Boys said the new look has appealed to customers in other markets such as Jacksonville, Fla., Los Angeles and San Diego. By 2007, the company said it plans to complete the refurbishment of all of its 593 stores across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
