Facilities: The company is comprised of five separate retail locations. All stores are located on a main thoroughfare in their respective towns. Known for fair pricing and knowledgeable parts professionals, they dominate their trading areas. The owner also owns all of the Real Property that the businesses occupy, but would prefer to lease the land and buildings to a new owner.
Competition: Major competition comes from other retail auto parts stores like AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, NAPA and O’Reilly Auto Parts.
Growth & Expansion: There are currently opportunities to acquire additional auto parts stores in the immediate surrounding area. The market trend is toward multi-store ownership. The small, one store groups can’t compete with the purchasing power of the larger groups.
