Background on the 90th Anniversary
The 90th anniversary of The Pep Boys – Manny, Moe & Jack is more than just a company celebration of its success within the automotive industry; it commemorates the evolution as an iconic business. The forever-recognizable caricatures of the Navy veterans who founded the company in 1921 changed the face of American advertising and were eventually implanted into American pop culture. Entertainment figures throughout the last several decades have been quoted using the expression “Everyone including Manny, Moe & Jack…” In short, they were not only woven into the fabric of the American motoring experience, but also forever established in the country’s pop culture lexicon.
