Pep Boys will take its Amazon.com Ship-to-Store tire installation national. Customers can now choose their neighborhood Pep Boys for the installation of any brand of tires purchased on Amazon.com.
The solution is designed for smaller fleets or those with regional drivers who do not return to base, according to the company.
Earlier this year, Pep Boys tested the offering in Tampa, Fla., and has since expanded to other major markets. The program will be available at all Pep Boys locations nationwide by the end of 2018. At nearly 1,000 locations, Pep Boys is one of the largest service networks to collaborate with Amazon.
As the largest national service chain without an affiliation to an original equipment manufacturer, Pep Boys offers customers a wide selection of tire brands, and working with Amazon broadens choices even further. When customers shop for tires on Amazon.com, they are prompted to select a local service provider and a preferred installation date and time.
