Pep Boys Celebrates Veterans Day by Honoring Military Discount at All Stores; Will Continue Every Day Going Forward

'Service Proud' Since 1921, Pep Boys Also Aligns With 'Hiring Our Heroes' to Provide Career Opportunities to Veterans, Reservists and Guardsmen and Their Spouses

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - November 11, 2015) - The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: PBY), the nation's leading automotive aftermarket service and retail chain, is proud to announce today that the military discount, 10% off all purchases (not valid with other offers) for Veterans, Reservists and Guardsmen, is being offered in all stores nationwide plus Puerto Rico every day going forward!

Also on this Veterans Day, Pep Boys is pleased to announce aligning with the national organization Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, to provide career opportunities to Veterans, Reservists and Guardsmen and their spouses.

Pep Boys has a rich military history, one that began in 1921 when Navy comrades who served together at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center during World War I banded together to form the company.

"We can truly say we've been military -- and service -- proud from day one," said CEO Scott Sider. "We are happy to honor the legacy of our founders by offering a military discount every day at every store, committing to hiring military personnel and their spouses and recognizing our Veterans, Reservists and Guardsmen across the company."

Part of a new "Service Proud" campaign, that recognition includes presenting associates with certificates of appreciation for their service and customized name tags celebrating them as a Veteran, Reservist or Guardsman.

"On behalf of all of us at Pep Boys, thank you to our associates and customers who have served," Sider said. "We salute you and your families," he added.
