Shop owners to put increased product availability from Advance to the test for a chance to win one of three Richards Rawlings Experience grand prizes
Roanoke, VA, September 19, 2017 - Advance Professional, a division of Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (NYSE: AAP) that serves professional repair facilities, is ramping up product availability in key markets across the country. The Advance Professional Availability Challenge gives shop owners and professional customers in the Atlanta, D.C. (including select areas of Maryland and Virginia) and Tampa Bay markets an extra incentive to partner with Advance Professional for their shops’ quality parts needs.
Advance will award up to three grand prize packages - one per market - that each include a Richard Rawlings Experience consisting of airfare, hotel accommodations, a meet and greet with Richard Rawlings at Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, a welcome dinner, spending money and more. Professional customers in the three markets can earn multiple entries into the Advance Professional Availability Challenge sweepstakes, receiving entries for their purchases and by providing feedback through customer surveys.
Additionally, as proof of Advance’s commitment to providing an unrivaled assortment of quality products, professional customers will also receive a sweepstakes entry if they request a part and Advance does not have the part available in their market.
