Don't think for one minute they closed the stores on Thanksgiving Day for the employees benefit. It's all about money and they are hurting right now because financially they are in trouble. They saved a bunch of money by closing stores on... read more

So corporate issues a travel ban for all field personnel today for the indefinite future. So that equates to zero sales productivity for the unforeseen future. Another nail. dumb--ses.
Hearing from vendors that a large number of Kansas City stores are being closed. Anybody hear anything?
They can make those numbers look anyway they want them too. Don't fall for this smoke and mirror games they are playing with everybody. I bet this stock don't stay up there long before it starts dropping. This company is in trouble. It paid 2.1... read more
Nice...start layoffs to coincide with the holidays. Great news to have to tell your family during what should be a happy time of year. Burn in hell you low life’s.
CDL cut 20 more hours out of the schedule for the week beginning Nov 26th... Under 300 now....lowest in 10 years...Labeled on the schedule as 4th Qt adjustments
How where layoffs decided? Do you think handled fairly? A lot people were effected.
1 confirmed store closure out of 8 so far!!! But you guys steadily delete the post about the great DM WE HAVE OUT HERE!!! MAYBE THIS WILL REALLY OPEN YOUR EYES!!!
That's right folks. Millions are defaulting on their auto loans. That's what happens when you sell 60K SUV's to McDonald's employees, part time workers, and anyone who can lie really well on an application for credit. And you thought record auto... read more
High fives abound at the corporate offices as people dump their stock as quick as possible. Hilarious to watch.
The 3rd qtr press release says " Adjusted SG&A was 35.5% of net sales. The increase was primarily driven by 131 basis points of higher labor, medical and insurance claims." Can someone explain? It mentions higher claims not premiums, so is this... read more
If you have stock, you now have a short window to dump it and recover some money. Last chance.
Over the weekend, I heard our radio ad for Advance promoting battery and wiper installs, code reading, and alternator and starter testing all for free. And a commercial account would want to support us why? No wonder we are heading back to 100%... read more
Raleigh dc is stopping night delivery to some Advance stores. Drivers only go when occasional needed item not avail from VA and now they r stopping that. Taking stores off routes but havent told drivers officially yet. Vollume on trucks from raleigh... read more
Get ready for the next nail in the coffin this week. Q3 results, followed quickly by layoffs. Numbers are horrible.
Do an online search for ""AAP Executive Salaries". This will make you sick.
Hey great news! AAP Stock is back and things are starting to look good again. We will be releasing our 3rd quarter results November 13th and this will push the stock even higher. Better buy all you can now before it’s to late. Don’t believe all the... read more
Delivery vehicles going away 100% at many locations. Contract carriers will be used if available locally. Otherwise reduced to a maximum of 2 vehicles. Coming soon.
The Little Rascal's with Alfalfa as CEO could do a better job running this company than our current Board of Directors
Overheard in Raleigh that there is discussion about totally eliminating the CAM position as the ROI is not adding up. Too many commercial customers have left to continue floating this position. I would assume this would include the CSM’s and field... read more
The sinking continues. Layoffs arriving soon.
So AAP fans did ya know your new interim CIO has no formal IT training - heck he doesn't even have an associates degree. He just gave the service desk manager the job of fixing APEX. If it didn't have such a possible impact to hurt the organization... read more
Look at our board of directors, not one has any automotive background whatsoever. No wonder stock has lost 50% year to date. They have run off anybody that had any automotive parts background. This company is in trouble. And the board of dummies... read more
Why doesn't the Raleigh DC service & deliver nightly to the profitable Advance stores in the Raleigh area? I'm assuming the Roanoke DC (or elsewhere) delivers to those stores because the Raleigh DC serves mainly independents & lower revenue Advance... read more
WorldPac & Autoparts International was left to operate separate from Advance so why did you screw up CARQUEST and consolidate them into Advance stores and lose half of the commercial business from these stores. What a bunch of smarties we have... read more
There seems to be a complete lack of understanding that they are in 2 industries simultaneously: omnichannel retail and commercial parts distribution. Trying to run them both out of the same box under the same brand creates constant tradeoffs that... read more
This site is like the store I manage. Full of whiners, crybabies, and losers. Lee Iacocca had a saying “lead,follow,or get out of the way” the latter is what you people should do. Please leave or resign ASAP, no two week notice needed. We don’t have... read more
Heard the Des Moines, IA CQ DC will be closed in 2018. Area will be serviced by Denver, Lakeville, and KC going forward.
How low can it go? We will see. Continuing to lose the commercial CARQUEST business they bought. What a bunch of college educated genius we have running this company. The problem is we probably have too much Harvard, Princeton, Yale or even maybe... read more
I am a long time employee in Roanoke I am also on various inter company committees. Surprise, there are no current layoffs and no future layoffs planned. Please rest your mind at ease you all have safe and secure positions with AAP. Now, let’s all... read more
Advance has proven it self to be reactive and not proactive in this business, and that has caused a lot of the trouble the company now experiences. Advance can not seem to grasp the concept of retail vs commercial customers, and has lacked both the... read more
Looks like the paisley cio of AAP got his walking papers. Who could figure? The man who could not deliver APEX. The man who force the outsourcing of the CQ call center that independents demanded be brought back. The man who wasn't good enough for... read more
Let start by saying how excited I am to be joining the Advance Auto Parts team. I look forward to meeting each and every team member. I have finally completed my series of interviews with your senior management and would like to say how professional... read more
When a DIY can go online and sign up for speedperks and buy the part cheaper than we are selling it to the commercial customer something is wrong. I've had my commercial customers call me about this multiple times. Their customers are showing them on... read more
I would like to second these articles that are reporting a Hugh turn around in q1. I am a representative of a vendor/supplier. I have met with many if not all of your buyers and senior management in both corporate locations. There is an air about the... read more
Team it is most important that we focus on the big picture here. We are a leader in our industry and we can seize on the failures of the competition. We will continue to rollout new initiatives that are firsts in the industry. Let’s focus at the... read more
