Advance Auto Parts Inc. opened its 4,000th store on Friday. The newest Advance store is located in Montgomery, N.Y.

Since 1995, Advance has added more than 3,000 stores to its operations through new store openings and strategic acquisitions. This new store is located in the Northeast, a key geographic growth area for Advance and part of the company’s strategy to continue expanding its footprint.

“As we celebrate our 4,000th store opening, I would like to thank Advance’s more than 54,000 team members for their hard work and contributions to our success,” said Darren Jackson, CEO. “Over the past 81 years, we have grown from three stores in Virginia to a national chain, serving millions of customers in 39 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Our company is continuing to grow, continuing to serve and furthering our commitment to grow our business with integrity and serve our customers better than anyone.”

Advance selects locations for new stores that are convenient to where customers live and shop as well as the garages where they take their vehicles for repair. The new store offers customers a wide range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services. Advance employees provide free installation of new windshield wipers and also offer a complimentary check of a vehicle’s electrical system and old battery as well as providing free installation of a new battery with purchase on most vehicles. The store offers fast parts delivery to local commercial customers as well. During regular store hours, customers may 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.

As part of the grand opening ceremony last week in honor of the 4,000th store, $4,000 will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
