PHILADELPHIA (July 6, 2005) — Pep Boys—Manny, Moe & Jack has unveiled 23 newly remodeled stores in the Chicago area as the automotive chain progresses in its efforts to turn around its retail business.
Pep Boys said each of the stores will celebrate grand openings starting July 7. The stores “focus sharply on providing customers with a wide range of basic automotive parts and automotive accessories and name-brand tires,” the company said.
Pep Boys has similarly remodeled stores in markets including Jacksonville, Fla., Los Angeles, San Diego and Philadelphia. By 2007, the company plans to refurbish “substantially all” of its 593 stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
