History and Development

Stable and Loyal—Since 1921

People taking care of people … and their cars. That’s how we’ve been built right from the very start. It began when the original Pep Boys—Manny, Moe and Jack—opened their first store in Philadelphia back in 1921. In 1933, they headed out west to set up more Pep Boys stores in Los Angeles. In the years since, that foundation of helping people and doing the right thing has taken us on a long journey. To 35 states and Puerto Rico, to be exact. Want to see the progression of our store growth? Click the decade buttons on the map below to see how many stores we added each decade of our nearly 100-year history. Want to know more about our story? You can read all about it right here.
