(NYSE: PBY), the nation's leading automotive aftermarket retail and service chain, today announced that sales for the 13 weeks ended Nov. 2, 1991, were $261,233,000, a 16 percent increase over the $224,823,000 that was recorded last year.

 STORE EXPANSION PROGRAM
 Five new automotive supercenters were opened during the third quarter, one of which replaced an outmoded, non-service unit in Fontana, Calif. The other new stores were opened in Nashville and Knoxville, Tenn., Orlando, Fla., and Raleigh, N.C.
 Pep Boys, which currently operates 330 stores in 18 states, said it expects to open 10 additional stores and close one outmoded unit during the fourth quarter.
 COMMENTARY
 Pep Boys' Chief Executive Officer Mitchell G. Leibovitz made the following comments:
 "We are pleased with the continued improvement in sales on a quarter to quarter basis. Despite the ongoing impact of the recession, especially in Southern California and the Mid-Atlantic states, our 7 percent increase in same store sales compares favorably with the 1 percent and 3 percent increases that were recorded during the first and second quarters, respectively. We remain optimistic about our ability to achieve a continuation of this positive sales trend in the fourth quarter."
