The following information was sent to us by Nic Shaw of Advance Auto Parts:

Advance Auto Parts, Inc., a leading automotive aftermarket retailer of parts, batteries, accessories and maintenance items, today announced it will open its third store in Gaithersburg at 401 North Fredrick Avenue on January 30.

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.

 Rodney McCray is the new General Manager and works with 12 other Team Members at the new Gaithersburg location. A 28 -year veteran of the automotive and retail sales industries, Mr. McCray has been with the Advance Auto Parts Team for four and a half years. He is ASE-certified, having passed stringent testing of his automotive knowledge by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

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 part – to 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 Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund,” said Rodney McCray, General Manager for Advance Auto Parts.

Vehicle know-how is made easier than ever by Advance. The Company’s web site, www.AdvanceAutoParts.com, offers articles, online videos and audio and video podcasts on the web site’s “Advance Know-How” section.           

            “This new store’s 13 Team Members will delight our customers with dependable and fast service every job, every day,” said Steve Taylor, 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 644 Quince Orchard Road, at 18208 Flower Hill Way, and at 15136A Frederick Road in Rockville.
