AutoZone Purchases Retail Building in Astascadero

Auto parts seller will open a store at 8195 El Camino Real

The 7,500-square-feet retail building at 8195 El Camino Real in Atascadero has been purchased by AutoZone Development Corporation for an undisclosed price.

The building was previously occupied by Hollywood Video, Quiznos and Morningstar Cafe.

Michael Martz and Pamela Scott of Hayes Commercial Group represented the seller in the transaction, and Trampis Chandler of Commercial West Associates represented the buyer.

AutoZone is the nation’s leading retailer of auto parts and accessories and has more than 4,600 locations in the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico.

“We feel this property is a great opportunity for AutoZone because it offers great signage and visibility on El Camino Real and easy access from the freeway,” Scott said.

Martz added: “Netfix and on-demand movies have changed the need for brick-and-mortar video stores. We are excited that we were able to quickly reposition the property and find a great long-term retail concept like AutoZone.”

— Ted Hoagland is the marketing manager for Hayes Commercial Group.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
