The change to the name Pep Boys came from a Philadelphia policeman who worked near the first store on 63rd and Market Streets. Every time he stopped a car at night for not having an oil wick burning, he would tell the driver to go see the "boys" at Pep for a replacement. Common usage gave rise to the name Pep Boys.

In 1921, four Navy buddies pooled together $800 to open a single auto parts supply store in Philadelphia. This venture would go on to become the multi-billion dollar nationwide retails and service chain that is known as Pep Boys today. With over 600 stores across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, the Company has come a long way from its humble beginnings.
