Advance Auto Parts Invites Pets to Stop in on Holiday Drive

Advance Auto Parts, a leading automotive aftermarket parts retailer, is welcoming road trippers to pull off the highway on their holiday travels any time from Dec. 13 through Dec. 24 and treat their four-legged co-pilot to a free bandana and fresh water while grabbing any pet and personal travel and road trip essentials they need to complete their holiday journey.

“Advance has always been a trusted location for motorists, which is why we wanted to elevate our in-store experience to meet the needs of this year’s traveling consumer,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president, merchandising, marketing and e-commerce. “Many consumers are eager to reunite with family this year, and we want to support them with care and speed every mile of the way. Creating a space for furry family members while motorists handle pre-road trip maintenance, last-minute gifting or one of our free curbside services along the way are all part of that mission.”

Pet parents are encouraged to spread holiday cheer and snap a photo of their dog, cat, bunny or other non-human co-pilot rocking their new accessory using the hashtag #AdvancePups for the chance to score some additional pet products and gift cards.

Advance’s latest seasonal initiative comes as part of the retailer’s larger purpose to help consumers both ‘advance their holiday checklist’ via deals on gifts that ‘get ya somewhere’ and dependable services that get them to their holiday destinations safely. This includes free curbside services like battery testing and installation, wiper blade installation and check engine light scanning.
