People taking care of people… and their cars. That’s how we’ve been built right from the very start. It began when the original Pep Boys-Manny, Moe and Jack-opened their first store in Philadelphia back in 1921. In 1933, they headed out west to set up more Pep Boys stores in Los Angeles. In the years since, that foundation of helping people and doing the right thing has taken us on a long journey. To 35 states and Puerto Rico, to be exact.
