Pep Boys, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Icahn Automotive Group, is acquiring Advanced Auto Service & Tire Centers in Phoenix, Ariz.

“We are pleased to increase our store density in the metropolitan Phoenix area with the acquisition of Advanced Auto Service & Tire Centers, the third largest independent automotive service chain in the market,” said Bill Ihnken, Icahn Automotive president of service. “This expansion of our service center network in Arizona will allow us to serve more customers in more neighborhoods, from Flagstaff in the north to Nogales in the south, with the highest quality total car care, including free services such as tire rotations, A/C checks, brake inspections and a year of roadside assistance with every tire purchased.”

Advanced Auto, a wholesale tire business since 1989, has 15 service centers and more than 120 employees. The majority of its locations are situated in the Phoenix area in the densely populated East Valley, with three in the West Valley and three further north in Prescott, Prescott Valley and Flagstaff. Its shops are full service with an average of seven bays. These locations will be transitioned to Pep Boys Service & Tire Centers.

“With this acquisition, we continue to grow our national service center network, focused on providing superior customer service as well as a broad selection of tires and parts, always at a great value,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO of Icahn Automotive. “We welcome the outstanding Advanced team to Icahn Automotive and look forward to building on the great customer relationships they have developed over the last 28 years.”
