Our Company, Our Culture

Opened in 1979 as Auto Shack by J.R. "Pitt" Hyde III, AutoZone was created with the belief that we can offer ordinary customers clean, well-organized auto parts stores and excellent customer service. Since then, AutoZone has revolutionized the industry while maintaining a customer-first, innovative mindset. AutoZone has grown to be the leading retailer and a leading distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories. Auto and truck parts, chemicals and accessories are available through AutoZone stores in 50 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Brazil.
