Sears Auto Center has announced that will expand its collaboration with Amazon to more stores in 2018, bringing the total to 118, up from the original 47 that rolled out in May. The Pasadena location, at 3801 E Foothill Blvd., is on that list.
Tires purchased from Amazon.com can be installed at participating Sears Auto Centers.
Mike McCarthy, vice president and general manager of Sears Automotive said the Amazon partnership is a step in the right direction for the chain.
“Customers are taking advantage of additional services during the tire installation process, such as oil changes and alignments. We are meeting our 60-minute tire installation commitment, and over 90 percent of the Amazon customers are new Sears Automotive customers.”
Sears stock rose 5 percent on the announcement. The company continues to struggle with declining brick-and-mortar sales, recently adding 68 stores to its list of 166 planned closures for this year.
The Ship-to-Store tire installation service will continue to roll out to customers across the U.S. over the coming weeks. Additional stores in Glendale and Los Angeles will participate.
