The ribbon-cutting ceremony for Advance Auto Parts' first store in the Dallas market took place on July 22, 2014.

Advance Auto Parts Inc. announced it has opened its first store in the Dallas market, located in Garland, Texas, at 103 S. First St.

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.

Dan Deignan is the new general manager overseeing a team of 22 members. A 16-year veteran of the automotive and retail sales industries, Deignan recently joined Advance Auto Parts and he is ASE-certified.

“Advance Auto Parts is committed to bringing our promise -- service is our best part --to life not only for our customers, but also in the communities where our customers and team members live. As part of this commitment, we are pleased to announce a $1,000 check has been donated to United Way,” says Deignan.

Along with senior management from Advance Auto Parts, Garland Mayor Douglas Athas and Garland Chamber of Commerce CEO Paul Mayer participated in a ribbon-curtting ceremony on July 22, 2014.

The Sales Counter Moved Again: And the Sales Floor is Now on the Smartphone

The sales counter just moved. Well, it didn’t “just-move,” it’s been moving. In my early days of selling tires at retail, it all happened in a small area at the store known as the sales floor. Consumers called or visited the store where the initial details of a potential sale were discussed. Today, the initial discussion is digital. The salesperson at the store had a great deal of control because the product and pricing information resided with the salesperson at the store.
