Advance Auto Parts announced the opening of five new Carquest retail locations throughout Central California. The new stores are owned and operated by Carquest independent owner and president of Next Level Parts, Jack Gosnell.
The new stores are located at:
- 1730 Jackson Ave., Escalon
- 412 S. Yosemite Ave., Oakdale
- 910 E. Weber St., Stockton
- 1557 Morgan Road, Modesto
- 924 G St., Modesto
The stores carry an assortment of leading name brand automotive aftermarket parts and products, including DieHard® batteries, which are owned and sold by Advance and Carquest. Parts at these stores will cater to both professional auto repair shops and do-it-yourself customers. Additionally, stores will carry products for heavy duty machinery and farming and agriculture equipment.
Gosnell’s journey as a Carquest independent owner began in 1999 when he opened his first store in Turlock. Since then, he has added seven Carquest locations throughout the region, including new stores opened this summer in Oakdale, Escalon, Stockton and two in Modesto. Next Level Parts also operates Carquest locations in Merced and Manteca.
“Since opening our first Carquest, we have been passionate about serving motorists in this community,” said Gosnell. “Whether they are taking their kids to school, making their daily commute, or need parts to perform their job, we will always go the extra mile to make sure they have the parts they need. These new locations will enable our team to reach more customers across Central California, and we’re excited to be part of these communities for years to come.”
“Jack and Next Level Parts have been outstanding members of Carquest’s network of independent owners,” said Carquest executive vice president of U.S. stores, Junior Word. “For over 20 years, his team has been committed to providing customers with the highest quality parts and services. We are thrilled for Jack and his recent expansion and look forward to witnessing the success of his new stores.”
