that could be true you being in mgt. both places, however, i have never seen an Auto Zone that does repair work or change oil. PBY is more of a complete deal, they could shave prices a little but still okay. I want to see them remain independent.
Tell Martha we miss her. We need someone to laugh at.
As I live in a small town there isn't a Pep Boys near us. I had two of the tires replaced here but on a trip to Las Cruces NM we stopped at Pep Boys and had 2 Definity tires to replace the last 2 tires that needed to be changed. While Pep Boys was busy we were taken care of within an hour. While there we talked with one of the other customers. She was married to a cardiologist and they ALWAYS used Pep Boys to service their vehicles. BTW when we had the first two tires replaced in our small town it took almost 2 hours. At PepBoys they installed Steel Tire Stems not so at the local tire place where we live. Not only was PepBoys cheaper they were better by about $40 per tire with the same tire warranty.
what's the differnce? Depression, Recession..it is prety much symantics at thi spoint in time...the bottomline is we all need brakes, tires and oil changes so we can get to work...PBY is a safe bet in these times.
