Advance Auto Parts completes deal to purchase GPI-CARQUEST

Recommended Posts

Below is a link to an article featuring the completion of deal in which Advance Auto Parts purchased GPI CARQUEST. This is a huge deal and will no doubt have other major part companies following this real close in 2014 and beyond.


Last year Advance Auto Parts aquired BWP CARQUEST, in the North East area. This is where I am located. So, far the transition has been smooth and I am still dealing with the same sales people and parts counter people, which is great. New product lines are slowly being introduced to us, and I am curious to see how we address training, their new banner program for shops, the DIY issue, and other things that Advance brings to the shop owners.


Just wondering how shop owners feel about this latest aquistion?
