This week the Carrollton Menu was able to confirm that the CarQuest Auto Parts store on Maple St. in Carrollton will be closing soon and consolidating with the Advance Auto Parts store at 417 Bankhead Hwy. in front of the Tower Plaza Shopping Center (Ollie’s). On January 3, 2014, Advance finalized a deal to acquire CarQuest for $2.04 billion cash. Since then, several CarQuest locations around the country have either been consolidated with nearby Advance stores or closed permanently. According to an employee at CarQuest, the Advance store is currently undergoing a renovation and, once complete, they will be moving both their inventory and staff there. CarQuest has been a staple of the Maple Street landscape since the 1970s.
