Advance Auto Parts Launches 2013 National Sneaker Sales Campaign To Support JDRF

Advance Auto Parts, Inc., (NYSE: AAP), a leading automotive aftermarket retailer of parts, batteries, accessories, and maintenance items, is proud to announce the launch of its 2013 sneaker sales campaign. This year marks Advance’s 20 th consecutive year of support for JDRF in their efforts toward curing, treating, and preventing type 1 diabetes. In the past 19 years, Advance has raised more than $35 million for JDRF, including over $4.3 million for diabetes research in 2012. Advance and its Team Members are tireless in their efforts to give back to the communities in which they live and work.

“Our annual JDRF Sneaker Campaign is always an inspiring time of year for our Company because it clearly shows our Team’s commitment to serving our community. The $35 million-plus that we have raised over the past 20 years is proof that Service is our best part - not only for our Commercial and DIY customers, but for our communities as well,” said Darren Jackson, Chief Executive Officer. “This year, our team is asking every customer to buy a pair of sneakers and to do their part.”

The Company’s sneaker sales program, which will be held at more than 4,000 stores in 39 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, begins tomorrow, August 22 and runs through October 5. Customers can purchase paper sneakers that benefit the charity including $1, $5, $25 or $50 sneakers. Advance then displays the customer purchased paper sneakers in the store windows to show support for this worthwhile cause. Proceeds from every sneaker sold go directly to JDRF and help bring the organization one step closer to finding a cure. In addition to the retail Sneaker Campaign, Advance raises additional donations from fundraising events at the Company’s distribution centers and Store Support Center.
