Napa'* about a 20 min drive for me...So I'll try the close places first. On high dollar parts, I'll go with who ever'* cheapest no matter the drive. Or if I need a part ASAP I'll make the drive. I went to HS with half of the Napa'* employees in the Savage location. So I can get discounts there too like everywhere else I go. So I guess I really can't vote?

O'Reilly'*

Until 2 years ago, it was Autozone because they were the store with the most stuff I needed. Then an O'Reilly'* was built down the street. They are smashing Autozone'* prices and have more stuff I need in stock more often. They have one guy in particular that really knows his stuff. My local Napa never seems to have supercharged specific parts in stock.

Never heard of murray'*. Here we have Checker, Red Rooster, Napa, Bumper to Bumper, Advanced Auto Parts (Also kinda a drive), Pep Boys and Auto zones...Which are Long drives 1/2 hr to 45 min.

Advanced is owning the price market here for parts. IAC'* at all the other stores, they either can't get them, or want about 75-90 dollars. Advance wants $35 I think.

Don't cause waves just for me. They still do good business.
