Pep Boys relocating later this year
Despite rumors that the local Pep Boys at 2728 Washington Rd. will close its doors for good after a holding company for the Augusta National purchased the tire and auto center for $6.9 million, manager Zack Bannecke said that is not the case. The franchise will instead relocate later this year, remaining on Washington Road. Bannecke would not disclose the new location but said that it will be near its current home. The move is expected to take place in November.
