CICERO – The Pep Boys store in Cicero has put a little more pep in its step.
The store will celebrate its new Speed Shop beginning at 10 a.m. June 29 at 2501 S. Cicero Avenue.
Manager Carlos Tapia said he is promoting the new Speed Shop department, which opened two months ago, and features performance parts for domestic and import cars and trucks.
“I’m hoping after the grand opening I’ll have more customers,” Tapia said. “A lot of people don’t know we’re here.”
The Cicero Pep Boys location is the only one in Illinois with a Speed Shop, Tapia said.
As part of the celebration, a car show will be held on the grounds, with cars starting to arrive at 9 a.m. Festivities will end at 4 p.m.
Billed as a family event, free water bottles, chips and soft drinks will be available, and trophies will be awarded for the hottest cars.
There will be store specials that day as well.
