American customers who buy their tires online can through Amazon now get them installed at Pep Boys across the U.S.
The service was first tested earlier this year in Tampa before being expanded to other markets. By the end of this year, all of the company’s nearly 1,000 locations will offer the service through the online retail giant’s ship-to-store option.
“We know shoppers sometimes prefer to buy auto parts and accessories from their favourite online retailers, and we’re pleased Pep Boys can still service their vehicles through our national service network,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO of Pep Boys parent company Icahn Automotive Group.
When customers shop for tires on Amazon.com, they are prompted to select a local service provider and a preferred installation date and time.
