How many of you CQ Independent owners have an exit strategy from AAP? Could be from retirement, health issues, or that Advance dumps you. I am weighing my options and have wondered what other owners may be doing. I was approached by another supplier... read more

The new pay plan punishes the top producers. My bonus will be half of what it was last year. The non-producers who never saw a bonus will benefit from the new compensation plan. You only have to hit 75% of GM target to make some money. Top producers... read more
Going to be interesting to see the reaction of commercial customers when all Advance locations stock Interstate Batteries in the spring.
I worked in Corp Finance for 3 years. I moved from Austin, TX to Roanoke, VA for the position. I left a few months ago and it was such a great decision. So many issues going on that I could go on rants for days. Chairman of the Board. He wants AAP to... read more
Word on the streets is more Las Vegas stores are getting ready to close!!! Is it true?
As a longtime CAM, it’s the time of year where my customers start looking for Christmas goodies from their vendors. As usual, it becomes a bit of a competition between suppliers as the customers always throw in your face what your competitor did... read more

How many of you think that we are to far gone and will be prime for the buyout that's coming, or that interstate batteries will save us from certain doom?
AAP is now considered a takeover target (per Jim Cramer CNBC). Other than Carl Icahn, who would want to buy this train wreck?
Has anyone else went to a 6 day work week? That's the new direction all the GM's received in my district. Effective immediately.
In my area(Maine) we've been given print outs of their customers purchases and pricing and told to go after them full bore.I don't like this,I don't think it will work,and will piss off the independents.The fact that we have access to all their info... read more

Auto Zone and O' riles looking for good people! They treat you better!
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
