Pep Boys – Manny, Moe & Jack has partnered with Just Brakes Total Car Care to be a tire supplier.
Just Brakes Total Car Care launched a tire initiative in June 2016 and the results have been successful, the company says. The recent addition of Pep Boys as a tire supplier greatly enhances Just Brakes' ability to compete in this market segment and ensure it can provide their customers with the right tire for their vehicles.
Pep Boys' Commercial delivery program, Pep Express Parts, offers immediate access to a broad assortment of tire offerings. Implementing additional sources is a natural fit with its current suppliers, the company says, and will allow Just Brakes to offer a wider variety of brands to its customers.
Just Brakes CEO Bill Ihnken says, "While Nexen is our featured brand supplied by ATD (American Tire Distributors), our stores must have the ability to source tires with immediate access for our customers. Just Brakes has added Pep Express Parts because their 'hot shot' delivery, robust hours of operation, and 800+ locations will ensure that Just Brakes can access their products without delay. Easy access to a wide range of products will complement our tire category."
"Pep Boys has been a trusted name in the industry since 1921, and we're proud to partner with Just Brakes to bring that trust to their customers," says Jeff Smith, director of national sales for Pep Boys.
"We look forward to helping Just Brakes increase their success in the tire business with our comprehensive tire program designed just for them," says Rick Levy, vice president of major accounts for Pep Boys. "Our large selection of offerings will fit all of Just Brakes' customers' needs with several major tire brands, such as Cooper, Hankook, Continental and Pirelli."
Established in 1980, Just Brakes has grown from a single location in Bryan, Texas, to over 136 locations in eight states and 14 major markets. Services have expanded from a focus on braking systems to a total car care solution, including oil changes, maintenance services and now tires.
