Advance Auto Parts Enters Dallas Market With First Store In Garland

Store offers a wide range of parts, recognized national brands and free services including windshield wiper and battery installation.

GARLAND, Texas – Advance Auto Parts has entered the Dallas market with its first store in Garland, Texas, at 103 South First Street. The new location opened July 17. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday, July 22,  with senior management from Advance Auto Parts, Garland Mayor Douglas Athas and Garland Chamber of Commerce CEO Paul Mayer participating in the ceremony.

Company officials said they chose this location for the store because it is where their customers live and shop, as well as where they take their vehicles for repair.

Dan Deignan is the new general manager and works with 22 other team members at the new Garland location. A 16-year veteran of the automotive and retail sales industries, Deignan recently joined the Advance Auto Parts Team. He is ASE-certified, having passed stringent testing of his automotive knowledge by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

The new store offers customers a wide range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services. Store team members will provide free installation of new windshield wipers and also offer a complimentary check of the vehicle’s electrical system and old battery, as well as provide free installation of a new battery with purchase on most vehicles. The store offers fast parts delivery to local commercial customers such as professional technicians and garages. During regular store hours, customers can drop off used motor oil and batteries for recycling as well – ensuring that these materials don’t end up in landfills where they could harm the environment.

“Advance Auto Parts is committed to bringing our promise – Service is our best part – to life not only for our customers, but also in the communities where our customers and team members live. As part of this commitment, we are pleased to announce a $1,000 check has been donated to United Way,” said Deignan.

Jack Henry, district leader for Advance, added, “This new store’s 23 team members will delight our customers with dependable and fast service every job, every day. The right parts at the right price are as important as the right advice to finish the job.”
