Pep Boys Opening in Caldwell

Car maintenance and service center moves into longtime vacant retail space.

A commercial building that has been vacant in Caldwell for a number of years has been showing signs of life recently with construction workers preparing for a new tenant—Pep Boys.

On Thursday morning, the Pep Boys sign was being hung on the facade of the building located on the corner of Bloomfield and Westover avenues.

Employees were also setting up the counter and merchandise in the glass-enclosed area of the business.

Pep Boys is a chain based in Philadelphia with more than 700 stores across the country, according to the corporate website. Pep Boys locations offer numerous automotive repair services, including scheduled maintenance, oil changes, tune-ups and tire installation and repair.

Patch will update this story with anticipated opening date, hours of operation and other details once they become available.

I would like to see a homebrew/winemaking supply store open up in the Caldwells. They are becoming very popular hobbies with the growth of the craft beer industry. As an avid homebrewer myself, it would be nice not to have to purchase my ingredients and materials online or have to drive to Corrado's in Clifton in order to get the supplies I need. Just a thought.

I actually drive a Mercedes but Lexus was a close guess. If you only exerted this much energy in your actual career rather than crying in the comment section, maybe you would make enough income to not have to worry about trivial things that you have no control over. Don't like Pep Boys and all these other stores that are popping up? Then don't go there. But they have every right to operate.

RM7 once again you show how ignorant you are. I do have control of what goes on as a resident, citizen,a voice here, and in the polls. I choose not to stick my head in the sand like you do, live as a selfish person, and pretend to be an advocate for the weak. I provide very well for my family, and although I am not posting this for recognition but just as a response, My family gives to those in need quite often. As a true conservative, I believe in fairness, freedom, and true opportunity for all. Stealing to give to others, just so I can take a large cut for myself in the name of power and greed I leave up to you and your kind. You fear someone like me, who can think and provide for myself.

Thanks John for responding, I think it is great that we are getting some real feedback on something that is very important to this town. Maybe the seeds have been sewn to bring back glory to Caldwell.

Sorry RM7, but Michael and I are conservative birds of a feather. Anyone who disagrees with our positions is a lib and it's our duty as Americans to do what we can to stop the Liberal scourge that is destroying our country. Michael has been taking a lot of heat over his comments regarding libs recently so I thought it was only fair to take one for the team.
