      Domestic same-store sales, or sales for stores open at least one year, increased 6.2% for the quarter.
      “Our results are a testament to our AutoZoners’ ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional customer service every day,” AutoZone CEO Bill Rhodes said. “ Our retail business performed well this quarter ending with positive same-store sales on top of last year’s strong performance.  And, our commercial-business growth continued to be exceptionally strong at 22%. The investments we have made in both inventory availability and technology are enhancing our competitive positioning.  We are optimistic about our growth prospects heading into our new fiscal year.”
      For AutoZone’s 2022 fiscal year, sales were up 11.1% to $16.3 billion, while domestic same-store sales were up 8.4%.

      An Advance Auto Parts manager is a TikTok sensation after refusing to accept a return of an open bottle of windshield-washer fluid.
      “The seal is cracked, it’s open, I can’t return it,” the manager says in a self-recorded video posted to TikTok on July 24.
      Incredulous, the customer replies that he matched it to other bottles in the store and “it still has the same amount.”
      “I’m sorry sir, but when you get a bottle and you crack the seal and you open it and you take this plastic off, that means it is not returnable,” the manager says. “I don’t know if you used it. You could’ve poured Gatorade in there.”
      With as much as $7.49 on the line, the man asserts that he “never had any issues with O’Reillys or AutoZone.” He then demands to speak to the manager. When the customer learns that the sales associate is the manager, he asks if he can speak to a district manager.
      “His number is on the front door,” the manager replies. “And on your way out, you can read the return policy.”
      After stating that the interaction was “completely unprofessional,” the customer offers some unsolicited advice for the manager who dared to uphold the store’s return policy.

      O’Reilly Automotive reported second-quarter sales of $3.67 billion, up 6% from second-quarter 2021.
      Comparable-store sales increased 4.3%, while net income was down 1% to $577 million. Comparable-store sales are up 30.4% on a “three-year stack,” which blends comparable-sales growth from the past three years.
      “After experiencing volatility in our sales results in the first quarter, the trends in our business improved and were steady throughout the second quarter,” Johnson said in a news release. “We continue to be very pleased with the strong growth in our professional business, which performed in line with our expectations for the second quarter, while our DIY business faced more pronounced pressure from the impact of high fuel prices and continued significant broad-based inflation.
      “Even facing these macroeconomic challenges, we are pleased with the strong sales volumes our team is generating in 2022, against comparisons to record comparable-store sales results the last two years. We are extremely proud of Team O’Reilly’s ability to deliver continued growth on top of the strongest years in our company’s history, and I am grateful for the unrelenting focus each of our team members places on taking care of our customers.”
      Regarding its outlook for 2022, O’Reilly lowered its sales guidance. O’Reilly now expects full-year revenue between $14 billion and $14.3 billion, down from its previous guidance of revenue between $14.2 billion and $14.5 billion. The company now expects full-year comparable sales to grow between 3% and 5%, down from its previous guidance of 5% to 7%.
      “The pressure on our DIY customers from heightened inflation and fuel prices has impacted our year-to-date performance, and we have factored the current environment into our expectations for the second half of the year,” Johnson said. “ … Despite these pressures, we remain confident in the strength of the core underlying demand drivers of our business. We are pleased with our start to the third quarter in July and are extremely confident in our team’s ability to execute our business model and provide the excellent customer service that drives our success as we finish out 2022.”
