Bottom LinePep Boys today is far different than where the company was a year ago. After so many long battles with failed improvement attempts, Pep Boys no longer has to answer the question regarding its business model and whether it can still work. The recent performance and clear fundamental shift to service-oriented business suggests that the model is progressing well.
Clearly, I like Pep Boys today more than I did in April. But there are still better investment opportunities out there.
