They are owned by the same company. Only a few pennies difference either way. Same product different box.

Totally different ownership. Similar products and prices. The Grundy Advance is head and shoulders above the Grundy Autozone in terms of personnel. The Autozone manager is a Bee and the other Autozone employees are rank amateurs.

Its not the same stuff, and its not made at the same place, Autozone has better bearings (Timkin), advance has better ball joints (Moog), Carquest has Raybestos brakes and Autoplus at Keen Mtn. has Wix filters and K-D tools, so if we could combine all these we would have all the best stuff at one store, but we cant so i call every place on a part before i decide if the brand is worth the price. The cheapest place is ROCKAUTO.com shipping is really fast and all kinds of brands at cheap prices, only fault is is something goes bad its much easier to get it replaced at advance. But advance sucks at price matching and dont want to help you at all on cost.. GOOD AND BAD with all

Neither one is, I prefer NAPA General Auto Parts, they might cost a few cents more but at least you know that you won't have to take a part back several times till you get one that's good.
You will come out cheaper by going to Jack the first time instead of paying someone to keep replacing the same part two or three times.

I used to go to advance for parts but every thing I got was either no good or wouldn't fit, then I started going to General Auto Parts and I've never got anything bad or that didn't fit so you can go where you want but I'll continue to go to NAPA even if it does cost fifty cents more.
It's cheaper in the long run.

NAPA crap is no better than the other places, it just costs more. A lot more.

OEM is not always better, Most OEM bearings are BCA NATIONAL which you can buy at advance cheaper and with a better warrenty, Moog is much better than OEM suspension parts which dont have grease fittings, and OEM brakes are mass produced from the cheapest place they can get them. I say OEM on electrical (starters & alt.) and most powertrain stuff but deff not on bolt on parts

"How fitting.." you say? Because it's not actually fitting at all seeing as how the two people HER MANAGER fired were actually fired over a situation just as severe. One for threats towards Shelia herself and another for possibly stealing from the company and taking advantage of the employee discount. AutoZone has no tolerance for things like that. If you knew anything at all you would know that she was not fired over that. Where you there the day she was fired? Doubtful. She thought it was a lighter! Someone who had been fired had a grudge against her and wanted to see her lose her job. A woman with more than 10 years experience in the field and more automotive knowledge than that of most men in the area. So no, it's not "fitting" at all since someone caused her to lose her job.

just like everyone here at advance hatted her too, she got just what she had comming to her, and far as that person she fired for treatening to hit her it was nothing but hear say, and i know that it wasnt said dirrectly to her it was thru another person nothing was said that to her directly from the employee, there was motivation because he was on workmans comp at the time, as far as the stealling yes ill give you that one but there is a little girl up there that should have been fired along time ago and now she is a manager cause she kissed the managers ass so much, but doesnt matter hope she likes being off for the holidays and her christmas is so much brighter

If you work at Adavance how are you even supposed to know she "kisses ass"? Have you ever worked with her? Do you even actually know anyone that you're talking about because it doesn't really seem like you do. And if she was supposed to be fired, I'm sure she would have been seeing as how others were fired "for a lot less."
