Walmart's Next Target Advance Auto Parts?


Recommended Posts

Hey, Walmart (WMT) , want to shake up a sector just as Amazon (AMZN) did last month when it announced its bid for Whole Foods Market Inc. (WFM) ?

Then make a bold move that will enhance your reach, pump up your brand and widen your footprint with a fresh group of shoppers.

So here's a disruptive move. Consider buying auto parts retailer Advance Auto Parts (AAP) , the weakest of the big three in the sector, which has 5,000-plus locations in the U.S. The other two players are O'Reilly Automotive, Inc. (ORLY) , the fastest-growing of the three, and AutoZone, Inc. (AZO) .....read more at the link below:

Wouldn't that be something! I still think there is some sort of consolidation that's going to happen between Autozone, Advance, O'reilly, and Napa. There are just too many parts stores and when you add all the other mom and pops and distribution centers, parts everywhere...More and more people buy online and that has to hurt parts sales at these locations unless they are capturing it online, but they still have brick and mortar costs to pay for.

The good thing about buying parts from the store, If you buy the wrong part, you can blame it on the employee. xD
