Sears revs up Auto Centers partnership with Amazon
Sears is going in deeper with Amazon.
The department store retailer is expanding a partnership with Amazon that enables customers to receive full-service tire installation and balancing at Sears Auto Centers for any brand of tires purchased on Amazon. The program, called Ship-to-Store, was introduced in 47 stores in May. It is now being rolled out to an additional 71 locations, bringing the total to 118.
“Amazon customer reviews have been very positive and we are two months ahead of schedule,” said Mike McCarthy, VP and general manager of Sears Automotive. “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% of the Amazon customers are new Sears Automotive customers.”
The Ship-to-Store tire installation service will continue to roll out to customers across the United States over the coming weeks, according got Sears.
