Advance Auto Parts officially celebrated the grand opening of its Maplewood location on Springfield Avenue with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday. The store has been open for business since Thursday.
The new store is at 1752 Springfield Avenue, the former site of World Tire. Company officials said they chose this location “because it’s convenient to where their customers live and shop as well as the garages where they take their vehicles for repair.”
The new store offers “a wide range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services.”
Store Team Members will provide free installation — in the rear of the store — for new windshield wipers and also offer a complimentary check of vehicles’ electrical systems and old batteries, as well as provide free installation of a new battery with purchase on most vehicles.
The store offers fast parts delivery to local commercial customers such as professional mechanics and garages. Customers can also order online and pick up items in the store within 30 minutes. The store will also provide recycling: customers may drop off used motor oil and batteries.
The store will be open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
