Actually, Carquest OWNS Worldpac. That creates issues for me, as they
(carquest) sell parts retail for about what they'll sell 'em to me for.
I get 2 Worldpac deliveries a day, with a 6PM and 9:30AM cutoff, and I
also get UPS NDA deliveries from them with assorted source based
cutoffs. I do $5K plus a month, but I think there may be other discount
criteria, because I know smaller shops that get a better deal than I.
Nevertheless, they're my main source and I've been doing business with
them, under one name or another (names changed as they grew) since
1976. As with the dealer, many parts are now sourced in China, and the
quality has suffered.
