AutoZone History

AutoZone was originally known as Auto Shack and was a part of the Malone & Hyde grocery chain.  The grocery was sold to the Fleming Companies of Oklahoma City and the name Autozone came to be.

In 1984, the chain had 194 stores in 13 states.  The company grew quickly in the 80s and had 513 stores in 17 states by 1989.

The company went public in 1991.

In 1995, the 1000th store was opened in Louisville, KY.

In 1998, the company acquired Auto Palace, TruckPro and Chief Auto Parts, which gave the chain over 150 extra locations.

There was currently over 4400 locations in 48 US states.  The Autozone corporate office is located in Memphis, Tennessee.

Good Morning,
Ok AutoZone it’s time to tell your truck drivers to SLOW down. Today in Texas we have Ice on the roads in the DFW area and your truck on George Bush Toll are driving at speeds of 50 plus. Slow down!

I feel sorry for the store managers that you all employ. I know a few of them and the way they are treated and the hours that they have to put in to meet all your requirements is just ridiculous. They all have families too but, it doesn’t seem like you all care. The managers I know are hard working and dedicated to your company and to get treated the way that they do is unacceptable in my book. I understand that managers put in longer hours because that is part of management. I have been a manager myself, thank god never for your company. I think that maybe you should put yourself in their shoes and see the hard work that they put in on a daily basis. However, I am almost positive that will never happen. Your company asks so much of all there employees and the pay isn’t that great at all. I have not been, nor will I ever be employed by your company because of your business practices. I hope that this reaches someone that will actually do something about all of this but, I am sure that it will fall upon deaf ears and you will continue business as usual which means you will lose out on some great employees because they will go where they will get treated better and appreciated.

tale a nightmare on autozone, Store 3445 Alpharetta Georgia.
I bought a transmission on 02/03/15 at 8:36am. They told me that the arrival date was on 02/06/15 at 6pm. i went there saturday and teh manager of the store told me that the transmission was on transit. I received a phone call from the regional manager on saturday feb 7th and told me that i should receive it on monday feb 9th. Today is Feb 10th and still not signs of the transmission. On the top of that, the personal warranty information is incorrect and have somebody else name on it and they cant even correct that at this time. I’ve been calling and emailing several people and nobody can give me an answer. Is there anyone that can take care of this matter???

Auto zone is no good to there employees because I used to work there and one day Friday morning the power went out we had a bad storm on Thursday night there was no a/c, computers were down so no checkout or looking at parts, it was dark couldn’t see nothing but your district manger and regional manger still wanted to keep the store open like really that’s dumb we had to write everything in paper in the dark. Autozone is the worst company to work for

Why during a state of emergency in the NE region of the US, county officials are closing state offices and multiple groups are demanding people not to be driving on roads unless emergency personnel, but your District managers are refusing to close stores and let workers go home. Are they that greedy to have associates be killed in accidents from this blizzard? District managers, or Regional manager continue to put your associates at jeopardy trying top keep stores open during bad weather. I wonder if it would be a good PR when/if someone dies driving home tonight during 1ft of snow, cause they were forced to be at your stores.

I went to you store on 714 N Horner Blvd sanford NC 27330 and i was so disappointed. First of I am a black male spent 8 years of my life in the United States Army and I walk into your store and get treated like a criminal from the start. I have a 2007 Yukon XL I was going to pick up a couple of parts for and when I was looking through some stuff there was a sales associate acting like he was looking through the oil, I saw him but I just didnt worry about it. Then I went to ask him a question about the difference between royal purple oil and regular oil and with a smart mouth he told me your store dont sale it. So i was about to leave then I remembered I needed tire spray so I went to were it was and when i looked up there he was looking at me at a cash register that wasn’t even open. So I left, there was at least four other people in the store that was not getting the attention I was receiving. That’s not right, I will be emailing higher and higher until I get an answer because I didn’t survive Iraq and Afghanistan to be called a criminal in my own city!

My boyfriend bought some blue devil for my car and we didn’t need it. He lost the reciept so He called AutoZone to ask about the return policy with no receipt the manager on duty told him if he doesn’t have a receipt he will not return it. My boyfriend then looked up the policy online and it says it can be returned he will get store credit for it. So I called the same AutoZone back and was told if I don’t have a receipt and the product was not open (which it was still closed) it can be returned and we will get an AutoZone card. My boyfriend went inside to return the blue devil and was denied the return. The manager called another store and because the other store had 2 bottles of blue devil missing that manager told him not to return it… We are not thiefs and we do plenty of business at AutoZone because my boyfriend is restoring/rebuilding his mustang and for them to not return an item we paid for is unacceptable. It is not our fault another store is missing items and it’s not professional to take it out on customers. I would like someone to contact me about this because it needs to be resolved.. The AutoZone this is regarding is 500 north spring garden deland fl 32720. The manager my boyfriend spoke with was Sean.


James J January 7, 2015 at 5:20 am

I have some parts I bought at Chief Auto Parts back in the day with a lifetime warranty, since autozone bought them out do they honor that warranty? I have the receipts.


Terry Breland January 2, 2015 at 8:26 pm

issue with Auto Zone battery. Twice they charged it and told me my nearly new battery tested good, only for me to find it dead the next mornings. I took my car to the dealer thinking I had an electrical drain and paid for an expensive diagnostic. They said the battery was bad – won’t hold a charge. The dealer could have convinced me to have an unnecessary repair or buy a battery from them but didn’t. They said go back to Auto Zone, try to get a refund and buy a new battery somewhere else. The dealer said they see a lot of this with Auto Zone claiming their batteries are good and won’t honor the warranty. I am going in circles trying to get this resolved. The Auto Zone manager says he can’t replace it because it tests OK there. Their “warranty” is meaningless so Buyer Beware.


Helen Martin January 8, 2015 at 2:13 pm

Going thru that now. The Gm dealer and my mechanic tested and told me I need a new battery go back to autozone and get them to replace it. Autozone clerk test and said that protocol required for them to charge the battery for our it is below zero I have a little boy and once I turn my car off it will not turn back on. Not happy with how they claim they stand behind their merchandise.


Helen Martin January 8, 2015 at 2:18 pm

Going thru that now. The Gm dealer and my mechanic tested and told me I need a new battery go back to autozone and get them to replace it. Autozone clerk test and said that protocol required for them to charge the battery for a hour. It’s below zero I have a little boy with me. once I turn my car off it will not turn back on. Not happy with how they claim they stand behind their merchandise. Now they tell me I’m not in there computer they never sold me a battery. I can’t believe this glad i purchase with my credit card. This is unprofessional of them

On Sunday the 21st Autozone was having a huge flash sale on oil. $1 per quart of Castrol SynBlend with free shipping. I purchased a quantity of 12. I didn’t want to be too greedy.;) I received conformation of my order a short time after via email. Three days later I get a notice from Paypal that my order has been canceled by vendor. No notification from Autozone and no reason why. I called customer service to find out what the problem was. From that point on it was a nightmare. Call dropped off several times before I could even get to a person. Once I was able to get to a customer representative I was told SORRY but you’re SOL since they are out of stock. OUT OF STOCK ON OIL??? The local Autozone had the same oil on the shelves but I was not allowed to pick it up locally. I asked to speak to a supervisor and again the call was dropped. I called again and asked immediately to speak to a supervisor and was transferred to another person. I again explained the issue and gave him my order confirmation number. Again I got the “SORRY BUT” response. After some bantering around they did tell me they would send my a gift card to compensate me for my time and trouble. I said “fine, then can you send me an email conformation with your name so I have a record of this conversation?”…. Next thing I know is… Silence and another dropped call. This will be the last time I deal with Autozone. It’s a shame since I have one just around the corner and I’ve done so much business with them over the years. I’m an avid car collector and motorcyclist. Currently have 5 cars, 2 motorcycles and an RV in the stable. I guess I’ll just have to make the turn in the opposite direction and go to the Advance Auto Parts just a few blocks away. Shame that this company would rather loose a customer then to work something out over 12 bottles of oil on a sale they promoted abut was insufficiently stocked for. RIP Autozone.


Mr Rich A Salzer December 17, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Today, about an hour ago I was treated worse than AlQaida @ the AutoZone (4926) located @ 1402 Kempsville Road, Chesapeake, Virginia 23320 [Ph# 757-382-4234]. The female was about 5’11″, Caucasian and the male was about 5’7″ Chinese(Asian). Did not get either of their names. Rude, discourteous, disinterested and uncooperative! I finally found what I thought would help my ’87 El Camino radiator – no thanks to these two morons! My Transaction # is: 005626, Ref # 4926-005626-141217-2. Signed Disgrundled Customer, Mr Rich A Salzer, Post Office Box **, Chesapeake, Virginia 23328, USA. Pls. cal me back: 1-757-679-****. Keep this sh*t up and I’ll be going to Advance Auto Parts or Pep Boys. Have an arrogant Christmas, as you are/were…Carry On (I’ll be writing as well)!

robert durham December 12, 2014 at 5:23 pm

The guy at the Whitehall, Ohio store by the name of Mark is walking around with the title of manager. I’m not sure who was responsible for putting him in this position but they themselves need their fluids checked!! I’m not going to waste a lot of my time nor yours with all the details, I will however say that this guy is one of the most unprofessional people that I have ever encountered. Immature and deceitful is just a couple of nice things I can say about my experience with him. Long time customer saying good bye Autozone, I’ll take my business and my money elsewhere without any regret. Keep up the pace Autozone your competitors love ya!!!!


MR.ALLEN December 10, 2014 at 6:01 pm

My experience today on 12/10/2014 between 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Was terrible, unable to return an item. I would like to post the names of people I spoke with but that may be too much. I won’t do business with this company ever again. But like Mr. H told me an expensive lesson learned (verbatim). Thanks for reading my post YOLO

Were is the honesty, customer service,and the respect I never was rude to the person and he decided to be disrespectful toward me I feel very offended and I will never ever go back to any autozone anymore


Jonathan December 1, 2014 at 8:10 pm

Hi today around 2:00 pm I called the autozone on West Ridge Shopping Center, 95 Myrtle St, New Britain, CT 06051 because I was looking for a part for one of my cars and I spoke to the rudest person on the phone . As I was trying to te her the year and model of my car she was just having a non related conversation with a coworker while I was listening to their personal conversation. Once she took my car information with an attitude, I asked if it was available at the store., she snap and yelled at me telling me to let her check to see if she have the part in the store. I asked to speak to a manager because her behavior is not acceptable and I would know since I’m a store manager myself for a very well known retail store. She said she was one of the managers, her name is I believe Liz G. Or Luz G. I’ve been a customer for autozone for over 17 years and this woman was so obnoxious and disrespectful to me that I decided never go back to that store.

I have been dealing with Auto-Shack/Zone for most of my pre-post adult life. I have bought parts for a 1980 Honda Civic through a 2013 Yukon and a lot of vehicles in between. I will say over the years I have had a few parts that wasn’t up to par on fitment to wearing out sooner than expected but I will say I have never had an issue getting the parts exchanged. I live in Tupelo, Ms with several Autozone(s) at my disposal, I only use one and that is the one on South Gloster Street. I have been dealing with Micki Boyette (Commercial Sales Manager) and Ricky Pate (Store Manager) for years and they have been awesome in getting the parts I need. I have spent Thousands of dollars with them and they have been knowledgeable and helpful whether I spend $5.00 or $500.00 at a time… Good guys and should be reconized for their values and dedication to your company because they always find a way to make the consumer happy and the company profitable at the same time… Thanks for you time!

Brought battery in August 2014 at AutoZone in Detroit tireman /Wyoming has been replaced 3 -times very disappointed if happen again iwant cash refund go somewhere else to get better quality I very disappointed with AutoZone


Ryan Cole November 17, 2014 at 6:36 am

recently purchased brake shoes for my daughters vw. I had the items shipped to home with no issues. When I went to install the parts would not work. I returned to the local store in Wayland MI. Thank goodness they had the same parts in stock because we were able to compare the parts that I had ordered and what the store had in stock…Part number 662.
The parts I received were manufactured incorrectly and we were able to see the difference immediately. I wanted to make someone aware of what happened. The correct part was make in Mexico and the incorrect part was make in the USA. Yes it was a inconvenience, not looking for anything just a FYI.

Thank you,
Ryan Cole

I live in Rossville, Illinois..
But on Thursday 11/13/2014 I bought a theromostat for my 200O Chevy Silverado at the Danville,Illinois store on North Vermillion st.
Today(11/11/14) (@630 am, with a temp. Of 18℃), my wife and I were headding 30 mins south out of the town we are living in when just 1 mile out, my truck over heats (we waited for an hour in the fridges cold before realizing it woukdnt cool down enough)…. So I proceed to install the new thermo stat, got everything taken off to replace the thermo. But the sales clerk I bought the part from at A.Z. sold me one that didn’t even fit….. So, I got on the phone and called tat store. The guy who answered the call said he couldn’t help., so I got a lil Pist..’ so the store manager “Brian Coffey….gets on the phone,
Yes, I said…hey, sorry my guys messed up lastnight, so I’m going to deliver this to u…”cool” I said…well ur store manager not only delivered me the right thermo, but also took it upon himself to install the new part, and brought me new anti-freeze….. It took Mr.Coffey about 20 mins to get my wife and I back on the road again.
Its gentalmen/Managers like Mr. Coffey that give consumers hope when doing buiseness with your company…… More managers should be more like Mr. Coffey
