To help those affected by the storm get back on their feet and driving safely, The Pep Boys – Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: PBY) announced today that it will offer free automotive services to those in the storm-affected areas of the Northeast U.S.

Pep Boys recognizes the importance of helping motorists ensure their vehicles are safe to drive after the storm. Due to the debris on the roads, many may have experienced tire damage. Pep Boys will fix flat tires free of charge. As motorists may be concerned about other possible damage to their vehicles as a result of the storm, Pep Boys is also offering a free preventative maintenance and safety inspection to identify any issues.

The free preventative maintenance and safety inspection includes:

  • Check tire condition and tread depth
  • Check and set tire pressure to manufacturer specification
  • Tire rotation
  • Brake system inspection
  • Check bulbs, wipers and air filter
  • Check fluid levels
  • Visual undercar inspection
  • Visual inspection of belts and hoses

“Pep Boys is an East Coast company, and we have seen firsthand the devastation Sandy has left in its wake,” said Mike Odell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the storm. Our stores and associates remain committed to helping people drive safely and we offer these services as a way to assist people in these communities to get back on their feet during these difficult days.”

Pep Boys wants these services to be easily accessible to those affected by the disaster. No applications, coupons or codes are needed; the free services will be applied automatically at check-out. The services will be offered from Nov. 2, 2012 through Nov. 21, 2012 in stores covering all of New Jersey, New York, Eastern Pennsylvania and Northern Delaware. A full list of participating stores and additional information will be available at http://www.pepboys.com/hurricane-sandy-disaster-relief-efforts.

Pep Boys stores will also open their doors to anyone who just needs to warm up or use free WiFi as another gesture to help the Northeast communities.
