Advance Auto Parts opens second store in Opelika

Advance Auto Parts, Inc., a leading automotive aftermarket retailer of parts, batteries, accessories and maintenance items, announced Tuesday it will open its second store in Opelika at 401 2nd Avenue next to Burger King on April 4.

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

The new store offers customers a wide range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services. Store Team Members will install windshield wipers for free and also install batteries following a complimentary check of the vehicle's electrical system and old battery.

The store offers fast parts delivery to local commercial customers such as professional mechanics and garages. Customers also can drop off used motor oil and batteries for recycling – ensuring that these materials don't end up in landfills where they could harm the environment.

 "Advance Auto Parts is committed to bringing our Promise – Service is our best partto 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 the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation," said Keith Edwards, General Manager for Advance Auto Parts.

"This new store's 11 Team Members will delight our customers with dependable and fast service every job, every day," said Danny Vale, District Leader for Advance Auto Parts. "The right parts at the right price are as important as the right advice to finish the job."

The store is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Other area stores are located at 2730 Pepperell Parkway in Opelika, 1698 South College Street in Auburn, and at 3330 20th Avenue in Valley.
