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.

Purchase a set of brakes for A Chevy pick up about a year ago. .I never used them still brand new in the box .My question is if its possible to get a refund for them and I misplaced my receipt. I don’t have the truck any more. So I’m kinda stuck with the brakes and I don’t have any use for them. ?

This is just a quick note to tell you all what a great job your folks here in Lakewood, Ohio are doing. I needed some help with my car and they went above and beyond to help me. When I told my friend who lives across the street from that store she replied that they were always super helpful over there. So I just thought that corporate should know what a great job they are doing. Thank you.

I recently placed my first online order with the app y’all have. I filled everything out, entered 2 promo codes and it showed they were accepted, at checkout I had a lower price, paid with my PayPal account, and then got an email of a higher price. After speaking to customer service which was no help, or couldn’t help, they told me only one promo code is accepted, I asked to of course then enter me the 20% off one and they again said they couldn’t. I am stuck with what was taken first, my only option is to return everything at local store an then redo which I will not waste anymore of my time. I have been a loyal customer for 20 years but as of today I will not shop with you anymore. As soon as this order comes in I will be returning everything with my rewards card to my local store. I seriously hope management gets a system in place so customer service can provide what they are there for,

Hello I live in San Antonio.tx. I go to your at least twice a day for parts I tinted a couple of store and I even make a custom box to show your Kenwood product but one district manager ( Joe Lopez ) is saying to some employees that he doesn’t like me but I’m buying parts that I need for that day it’s not fault he’s get old and having to deal with stores problems but he said he’s was going band me from the store , but I know there no there sign saying Joe auto parts. Then he’s saying to employees that if I’m in the store he’s going to write then up for me parts is that a power trip I hear. Well If he band me from the store I will going to the local news with it and to see what else they can help me out with maybe. Talk to a lawyer all I ask is to .remove from position and make he a parts drivers that way he doesn’t deal with public. I am a small owner and if my workers would day that i would fire them but he’s ur problem. I will be waiting for your reply. The store is on Gillette Southside of San Antonio

Dear AutoZone,
Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Muliagatele Mark Paul, Managing Director of Gold Star Co Ltd of Apia, Samoa. Our family company (owned & operated) was incorporated in 1928 and amongst other interests operate Gold Star Auto Parts & Accessories, Samoa.
Gold Star Co. Ltd is working towards improving its products and services offerings in the automotive aftermarket to meet the quickly evolving changes and demands in the Samoan market. Even after almost 90 years we are acutely aware that change is constant and that we have to do more than keep up if we want to remain and be leaders in the automotive parts & accessories business in Samoa. We are keen to realize a commitment to establish as quickly as possible a next gen auto parts store.
Samoa is a small island nation in the South Pacific but the market dynamics are the same as in the significantly larger markets. The big point of difference however is that our market is small by your standards and is very price conscious given our low GDP per capita of approximately USD$4,212.36 for a population of 180,000.
We have been sourcing our inventory directly/indirectly from manufacturers in the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China and others but supply logistics and order processing/delivery lead-times from these multiple sources is always a challenge. To enable us to manage this process better and meet the changes and demands of our market, it is crucial and urgent that we seek a business partnership arrangement with a reputable company like AutoZone……“the leading retailer and a leading distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the US”.
Recently a family friend & competitor who is the owner/operator of Samoa Spare Parts approached and were offered the Carquest brand for Samoa (formerly Western Samoa) through an affiliation with Carquest San Diego (Hawthorne Power Systems). Carquest have established affiliations outside of the mainland USA, in Guam, Saipan and American Samoa (a US Trust Territory) through Hawthorne Cat (Hawthorne Power Systems) and have decided to carry this model through to Samoa.
In light of this, it is critical to our business and its growth, to find and enter into a business relationship with a leader in the US Auto Parts retail industry. I believe that AutoZone is the leader from whom we can source and consolidate our supplies out of the US West Coast. This will enable us to benefit from the economies of scale that would come with such an affiliation. AutoZone, who are “committed to providing the best parts, prices and customer service in the automotive aftermarket industry”, is an exciting prospective partner we wish for.
We would look to AutoZone as the primary source of most products and for assistance in planning, shop layout & fit and with the implementation of strategies to present and promote AutoZone & Gold Star actively in our marketplace with a Next Gen store.
Since the road rules changed here in 2009 with the switch from left hand drive to right hand drive vehicles, the number of vehicles being imported into Samoa has increased exponentially for both new and Japanese Used Models. Obviously, the supporting industries have also grown as a result. In the current conditions, we know that Gold Star can do so much more in the growing and competitive auto parts aftermarket. While we now have RH drive vehicles in the majority, most parts are interchangeable with those of LH drives. OEM and Brand part numbers can now be readily crossed and any that cannot be sourced from the USA we would continue to buy from current suppliers. I estimate that initially 60-70 percent of our inventory could be sourced AutoZone.
I am sincerely hopeful that AutoZone will give serious consideration to what I am proposing and I am confident a relationship will result in mutual benefit and satisfaction and give the AutoZone brand access and presence in our market and the South Pacific.

PS: To whomever in AutoZone that receives this email, please forward on to management concerned with distribution and export.

I recently applied at one of your locations at 505 N. Oak Pearsall,Tx. I got a call from them and the manager sounded pleased that I spoke spanish fluently. Well when he realized that my son was working there he told me he would have to check with his colegue about it and would call me right back. I thought I had a chance since he did not call back. Well I went in to find out the statice, he told me No. Just cause my son worked there. Come on if this was going to be the problem, why doesn’t it state on the application if you are related to someone working for Autozone that you would not be consider for the postion??!! He wouldn’t even consider on a split scheduale. Come on,in this small town everyone is related to each other one way or another. But I hope, that for my son this comment will not affect him at work.

Had a horrible experience in this shop. The so-called “store manager” that was on duty today,Lance Boyd, denied my refund ($55 headlights) on the grounds that the item was used. Yes the pack was open, but the headlights inside were still mint. He calls himself trying to point out to me some dust on the bulb to indicate it was opened.Called regional support to get the refund pushed through but to no avail. I think he knew he was wasting his time with me because he laughed in my face once he got back to the register to tell me how I wouldn’t be getting my money back, even though I purchased the item less than twelve hours ago. It is absolutely ridiculous that a multinational corporation such as Autozone, which is built on the loyalty of it’s customers, would refuse to refund an item to the very consumer that has helped it to grow from the ground up. With all the money these people make daily,one would think that the manager of all people would at the least make an effort to provide good customer service, or even at the very very least provide a credit of some sort to make up for my own mistake in purchasing the wrong product, but shopping at the this joke of an establishment to begin with. I have returned other items at this Autozone and different ones in the past. Let’s see just how long they keep customers treating them this way. And Tammy Hamilton, as the DISTRICT MANAGER of this establishment should be ashamed at the type of buffoons she employs in her operations. Lance seems like the type of guy who was only promoted because he refused to quit and move on to better work. Guess some people just feel good disrespecting those that are directly responsible for putting money into their paychecks. Shame on autozone
