Discount Auto Parts Available to Counties
The National Association of Counties’ (NACo) Financial Services Center recently announced a new co-operative purchasing contract with Auto Zone for automobiles and light duty trucks parts and accessories. The contract was awarded through the U.S. Communities Governmental Purchasing Alliance and is available for use by participating agencies nationwide effective immediately.
The Auto Zone contract provides a broad range of automotive parts and accessories through both the commercial and retail outlets of Auto Zone without the need for additional solicitation. The contract includes highly favorable pricing on entire categories of products through Auto Zone.
Auto Zone Commercial has the delivery capability to provide parts to pubic agencies from their nationwide footprint of stores. In addition to this delivery capability, Auto Zone offers lowest zone pricing, plus an additional discount, for public agencies at the Auto Zone retail locations. Orders can be placed in advance and picked up at the stores.
As the use of the contract grows nationwide, Auto Zone will provide deeper discounts to public agencies from the lowest zone price. As the discounts increase public agencies that previously used the contract at the lower discount, will be provided a credit for the discount difference.
Public agencies that are interested in using The Auto Zone contract must have registered to participate in the U.S. Communities program and will need to establish or update their account with Auto Zone.
