Advance Puts Pets In The Driver's Seat For The Holidays

Advance Creates Holiday Road-Trip Promo For Pet Owners

Pups and their paw-rents are invited to stop by a participating Advance Auto Parts store for road-trip essentials and a free gift.

Consumers can’t imagine holiday road trips without their furry family members. In fact, 78% of pet owners travel with their pets each year, and 68% of those travel between 100 and 500 miles with their pets, according to a recent TripsWithPets survey.

That’s why Advance Auto Parts says it is creating the “purrfect” surprise experience for “paw-rents” this holiday season.

This holiday season, pups and their paw-rents are invited to stop by a participating Advance Auto Parts store for road-trip essentials and a free gift, as modeled by Sammy the golden retriever.

Developed with the 23 million households who adopted pets during the pandemic in mind, from Dec. 13-24, participating Advance retail locations will welcome road trippers to pull off the highway and treat their four-legged co-pilot to a free bandana and fresh water while grabbing any pet and personal travel and road-trip essentials they need to complete their holiday journey.

“Advance has always been a trusted location for motorists, which is why we wanted to elevate our in-store experience to meet the needs of this year’s traveling consumer,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president, merchandising, marketing and eCommerce. “Many consumers are eager to reunite with family this year, and we want to support them with care and speed every mile of the way. Creating a space for furry family members while motorists handle pre-road trip maintenance, last-minute gifting or one of our free curbside services along the way are all part of that mission.”

Paw-rents are encouraged to spread holiday cheer and snap a photo of their dog, cat, bunny or other “pawsome” co-pilot rocking their new accessory using the hashtag #AdvancePups for the chance to score some additional pet products and gift cards.

Advance’s latest seasonal initiative comes as part of the retailer’s larger purpose to help consumers both “advance their holiday checklist” via deals on gifts that “get ya somewhere” and dependable services that get them to their holiday destinations safely. This includes free curbside services such as battery testing and installation, wiper-blade installation and “Check Engine” light scanning.
