Company description

Advance Auto Parts Inc. was formed in 1929 as Advance Stores Company Incorporated and operated as a retailer of general merchandise until the 1980s, when the company began focusing on sales of automotive parts and accessories to do-it-yourself (DIY) customers. The company was incorporated in 2001 in Delaware in conjunction with the acquisition of Discount Auto Parts Inc. The company conducts operations in two reportable segments: Advance Auto Parts (AAP) and Autopart International (AI). The AAP segment operates 3,420 stores within the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which operate under the trade names Advance Auto Parts, Advance Discount Auto Parts and Western Auto. The AI segment was acquired in September 2005 and operates as an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary, primarily serving the commercial market. The company's merchandising strategy is to carry a broad selection of high-quality brand name automotive parts and accessories such as Bosch, Castrol, Sylvania, Prestone, Monroe, Bendix, Purolator, Dayco and Trico, which generates DIY customer traffic and also appeals to commercial customers.
