KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (NYSE: AAP), the largest automotive aftermarket parts provider in North America, serving both the do-it-yourself and professional installer markets, opened its ninth store in Kansas City at 2661 Independence Blvd., on Oct. 24, 2014.

In a press release, company officials said they chose this location for the store because it’s convenient to where their customers live and shop as well as the garages where they take their vehicles for repair. Oscar Gonzalez, the general manager works with nine other team members at the new Kansas City location. Gonzalez is a 15-year veteran of the automotive and retail sales industries and has been with the Advance Auto Parts team for nearly eight years. He is ASE [Automotive Service Excellence] certified, having passed testing of his automotive knowledge by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

The new store offers customers a wide range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services. Store team members will provide free installation for your new windshield wipers and also offer a complimentary check of the vehicle’s electrical system and old battery, as well as provide free installation of a new battery with purchase on most vehicles. The store offers fast parts delivery to local commercial customers such as professional mechanics and garages. During regular store hours, customers may drop off used motor oil and batteries for recycling – ensuring that these materials don’t end up in landfills where they could harm the environment.

“This new store’s 10 team members will delight our customers with dependable and fast service every job, every day,” Cory Schulz, district leader for Advance Auto Parts, said. “The right parts at the right price are as important as the right advice to finish the job.”

The store is open from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. There will be an official ribbon cutting at noon Tuesday, Nov. 4.
