by Katie Lee

Hoffman Estates, Ill. — Sears is opening a first-of-its-kind DieHard Auto Center Driven by Sears that is designed to meet the ever changing needs of today’s driver. The new store in San Antonio opened on February 17, 2017.

The DieHard Auto Center leverages interactive in-store merchandise displays and advanced diagnostic technology. It offers a suite of services and amenities, including vehicle inspection and maintenance plans.

“The new DieHard Auto Center Driven by Sears is another example of how we’re unleashing the power of the DieHard brand,” says Brian Kaner, president of Sears Automotive. “It offers state-of-the-art technology and services in a contemporary, comfortable setting — that, combined with our experienced associates, can help today’s drivers make the right choices for their vehicle’s needs.”

“DieHard is America’s most trusted automotive battery brand,” says Tom Park, president of Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands. “In 2016, we introduced DieHard tires, which have been well-received by our customers, as we have continued to see positive, strong sales since their introduction. As we have also expanded the brand into automotive consumer electronics accessories, it’s a natural evolution to extend the brand to automotive service.”
