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.

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)!

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!!!!

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

When to autozone on miami fl 119 street. Was there for 45 minutes, when to the register to pay , I notice I didnt use my reward card, I tol him since I’m buying for a lot of money can you please rescan my items for me since it’s only there isn’t anyone waiting. He said no, open the register and put the money. I told him u were not done checking my items, since you just want to get ride of me can. I want to return them and get my money, he said return system down, it was 7:45. When home call them on the phone and ask if I can return it they say yes. That man look at me dead me dead in the eyes and lie to my face and keep my money. 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

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!

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
