    You and auto part stores

    Do you walk out of a auto part store empty handed? Every time I go to a store that has to do with cars I need to buy something for it. Like cleaning supplies, new mats, air freshners even decals.

    I have sometimes waled out with nothing at all. Yhe reason being you call ahead your specific with your needs, they say they have it in stock, you go thier and they dont have the item or "I thought you meant this" Nice try c-ya. Otherwise I usually come out with something.

    For me typically nothing at all. I don't care for Auto Parts Stores the times I have asked about Meguiars products I have found they lack knowledge in that area.

    I usually just go to O'Reilly's, and since they carry Meguiar's pro line stuff, its hard to leave empty handed. I'm lucky enough to have found a store with a manager who knows a thing or two about detailing.

    That would be nice. My O'Reilly's barely carries Megs consumer line and a few NXT products!

    Same here there are only 5-6 pro line products and only a hand full of consumer line.

    My local Sherwin Williams Automotive is great. The auto parts stores around here dont carry much Meguiars. At SW I now have an account set up even. It's free, with no minimum to buy. I get stuff for a little less than ADS prices with out shipping. If they dont stock it, it only takes them a few days to get it. They even said they would stock items that I think I might be needing.

    The Autozone here has the new QD can, Hot Shine, QWD and Meguiar's Smooth Clay Surface.

    I got a Kragen around the corner from me and it handy when I run out of quick detailer or soap.
