The history of Advance Auto Parts can be traced to as early as 1932, when Arthur Taubman, the company’s founder, bought out two Advance Stores in Virginia (Lynchburg and Roanoke) from the Pep Boys. Over the time, the company slowly expanded and did not show any bursts of rapid expansion. It was only 1998 when Advance Auto Parts attempted to acquire a large number of stores for the first time. Then, the company acquired a part of operations and facilities of Western Auto, a retailer of auto parts. A large part of Western Auto’s operations, however, were acquired by Sears back in 1987.
That gave start to the rapid expansion of Advance Auto Parts, and the company acquired a regional retailer of automotive parts (which was called Carport Auto Parts) with 29 stores in Alabama and Mississippi in 2001. In the same year, however, the company undertook an even larger takeover, whereas it acquired 671 stores of Discount Auto Parts, Inc., a regional retailer of automotive parts that operated in Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. In 2002, the company also purchased 57 stores of Trak Auto, another retailer that filed for bankruptcy.
Eventually, the company transformed into what it appears to be nowadays, whereas it owns and operates 5,200 stores across the United States, as well as 1,300 independently owned stores. In addition to that, there is also a subsidiary known as AutoPart International, which owns and operates 202 stores in Canada and the United States. After an acquisition in 2013, the company appears also to be an owner of WorldPac, Carquest Canada, and Carquest. In general, Advance Auto Parts employs more than 74,000 workers. At the same time, the major shareholders of the company include Vanguard Group Inc. (8.54% of the shares), Wellington Management Group LLP (8.29%), State Street Corp (4.50%), Statboard Value LP (3.77%) and others.
