Tenant Overview

Having a realitively strong credit rating makes this tenant an strong investment candidate, however long term feasibilty of their business model remains to be seen given the continued pressure from ecommerce. Regardless, AAP continues to expand its store network in both new and existing markets to grow its commercial and DIY customer base. In a move that created the largest automotive aftermarket parts provider in North America and surpassed rival AutoZone in sales, AAP acquired privately-held General Parts International, a distributor and supplier of original equipment and aftermarket replacement products for commercial markets operating under the CARQUEST and WORLDPAC brands.

The company has also been moving into the commercial market in recent years. To better serve commercial customers, AAP has added more parts from key manufacturers to its inventory and expanded its workforce with parts professionals, delivery drivers, and sales representatives.
