Pep Boys Expands Tire Installation for Amazon.com Customers Nationally

The program will be available at all Pep Boys locations nationwide by the end of 2018, according to the company.

Pep Boys announced it will offer its Amazon.com ship-to-store tire installation on a national basis.

Customers now can choose their neighborhood Pep Boys for professional installation of any brand of tires they purchase on Amazon.com, the company noted. When customers shop for tires on Amazon.com, they are prompted to select a local service provider and a preferred installation date and time.

“Pep Boys will now offer customers across the country the convenience of having tires purchased on Amazon shipped directly to our locations and installed by our expert pros,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO of Pep Boys parent company Icahn Automotive Group. “We know shoppers sometimes prefer to buy auto parts and accessories from their favorite online retailers, and we’re pleased Pep Boys can still service their vehicles through our national service network.”

Earlier this year, Pep Boys tested the offering in Tampa, Florida, and since has expanded it to other major markets. The program will be available at all Pep Boys locations nationwide by the end of 2018, according to the company.

“As the largest national service chain without an affiliation to an OEM, Pep Boys offers customers a wide selection of tire brands, and working with Amazon broadens drivers’ choices even further,” Icahn Automotive Group said in a news release.

In 2017 and 2018, Icahn Automotive expanded its local service footprint in key markets by acquiring both franchised and owned service centers and remodeling existing Pep Boys parts and service locations.

“In addition, the company continues to invest in people, programs, technical training and technology to ensure a superior customer experience,” Icahn Automotive said in a news release.
