ABACO, BAHAMAS — Four years after its Abaco location was destroyed by Hurricane Dorian in 2019, CarQuest is working to open its doors in Marsh Harbor, Abaco in January 2024.
Stephen Albury, President of CarQuest Bahamas, said a $1.5 million investment is being made to ensure the new location is ready to deliver on the auto needs of the island.
“CarQuest offers a wider selection of inventory and services that most companies in The Bahamas don’t have from the back end,” Albury said.
“Advance Auto Parts is a big boxed, fifty-five-hundred-store strong company in the United States… So, now we’ve got a large network of stores and strong inventory in Nassau, Freeport, and soon Abaco with more stores on more islands to come,” explained Albury.
He noted that the Abaco location, which is set to be housed in the former Marsh Harbor RBC branch, will also be branded Carquest by Advance.
