I must agree with autoskeptic. You are in a very
bad situation that many of us have had to deal with
in the past. This is a prime example of the
challenges facing PBY stores. Little to no help or
leadership from above. This is not just a PBY problem it is
a retail problem. The difference between your
company and those that are enjoying success is your upper
managements ability ( or inability ) to keep your teams happy
under adverse conditions.
I live in the southeast
and have watched PBY build brand new huge stores
staffed as full as possible. But the bays are 1/2 empty
and the team is standing around with nobody to wait
You are working for a company without direction or a
plan to snap out of this other than closing locations
and terminating new growth.
you are obviously a "understaffed, overworked,
and underpaid" Pep Boy employee who proudly displays
your G.E.D. certificate on your wall. Your choice of
words leaves a lot to be desired. Go back to work and
get busy, there are customers waiting to buy parts,
and they are getting PO'd having to wait so long.
if you think that the stock price has anything to
do with to store management, you fuckin" dick, try
running the store understaffed, overworked and underpaid.
Maybe you can generate a higher stock price with the
customers that come in with the '72 ford and pay $100.00
for a tune up and expect it to be painted, waxed,
washed and running like it came out of the showroom.
Please offer any assistance; we would love to hear from
you, you fuckin' dick!!!!
Look at autozone - there stock is gradually
rising while this stock is falling ....
maybe one day
we will be able to break even - how can the
directors of this company continue to put up with
lackluster performance. I have believed that this company
would turn it around before long. This stock was
trading in the 30's in January 1995 - the P/E is higher
today than it was in January 1995 - As for a takeover,
the company made a decision several months ago to
take some kind of action to prevent some one from
buying them out. Thanks to all of you for letting me cry
on your shoulders.
I suggest you read the annual report. If the site
is www.pepboys.com I could not get it to come up
this morning. They must be updating it. Will try again
later. I will comment on repair service at PBY..... the
service bays are always almost full. The Reno store has
around 8 bays, and usually only one of those bays is
without a car. PBY mush give good repair service because
a lot of people use them. After looking at chart, I
would not buy this stock until it starts creeping up a
little. But, to really decide, I would need to know how
they choose sites for new stores. Hope this helps.
Also comment on ABS board. Differs from this one.
Disregard that one.
Another day,another low. Is PBY stock priced low
enough for another company to buy it out or is
management going to issue a share repurchase to show us
shareholders that this stock is under-priced? (Maybe it's not
underpriced?) Who knows?
