PHILADELPHIA – Pep Boys announced it has acquired PJ’s Auto & Tire Center in Franklin Square, N.Y., and opened a new Pep Boys Service & Tire Center in Bordentown, N.J.

“We are pleased to grow our presence in both the New York metropolitan market and the greater Philadelphia area,” said James Healy, senior vice president of Corporate Development and Strategy for Icahn Automotive Group. “With these two new locations, Icahn Automotive is adding to our network of approximately 1,500 service centers nationwide.”

PJ’s, a family-run business since 1980, is a six-bay shop located in a high-traffic neighborhood in Franklin Square on Long Island. Like the new six-bay shop in Bordentown, it will operate as a Pep Boys Service & Tire Center.

Earlier this month, parent company Icahn Automotive Group said it has agreed to buy Precision Auto Care, which has more than 250 corporate-owned and franchised Precision Tune service locations in the United States.
