The Automotive Parts Headquarters (APH) network of Auto Value parts stores has surpassed 130 locations with additional market growth opportunities on the horizon for experienced store owners, as well as, new entrepreneurs. Recent studies have projected that motorists are keeping their vehicles longer and driving more miles, thereby increasing maintenance and part replacement needs by do-it-yourself (DIY) and do-it-for-me (DIFM) customers. As a member of the Auto Value family, you have a full menu of business support programs and sales building resources available to take advantage of these positive consumer trends.
• Store operations: We share “best practices” that are invaluable for benchmarking and identifying profit opportunities.
• Product support: Extensive application coverage for domestic, import, heavy-duty, marine, agricultural and recreational vehicles.
• Delivery support: More breadth-less depth inventory benefits with our overnight freight service. Next day turn around on special orders gives you a competitive edge!
• Computer support: Immediate part inquiry and internet ordering. In-house technical support and onsite training for new owners.
• Inventory management: Maximum turns and investment protection via our state-of-the-art inventory control system.
• Training support: Classroom and online seminars for store personnel and technicians.
