Count Pep Boys — Manny, Moe & Jack as another installation option for consumers buying tires online from Amazon.
Pep Boys says it first tested the installation service for Amazon tire purchases made in the Tampa, Fla., area, and then expanded it to "other major markets. The program will be available at all Pep Boys locations nationwide by the end of 2018."
The chain, part of the Icahn Automotive Group LLC, joins Sears and Monro as national installation partners for Amazon. Tire shoppers can choose any brand of tire and then select any of those nearby stores for installation before completing their purchase.
Adding Pep Boys gives customers nearly 1,000 locations as options for installation.
“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,” says Dan Ninivaggi, CEO of 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."
