I do not shop there.
It took three tries to get a bettery for my vehicle (a 1999 Dodge Durango).
Even though their computer said they had one in stock, they didn't. The clerk kept giving me one that "should work", but didn't.
When the clerk told me that I had a problem, in words that shall not get repeated here, I explained to him and all who heard, what the problem was.

Go to O'Reillys.

That is typical of most corporations. They are too concerned with liability and prefer employees who passively allow crimes. The litigious nature of our society has reached nearly all levels.

I am a regular customer. I sent a comment, expressing my displeasure with the firing, and I feel the policy is wrong, that the employee should be honored.

I asked for a response "While I am still a customer"

Could be wrong, but I wouldn't hold my breath for too long waiting for a response (unless you get a quick generalized form letter). A family member of mine has worked there a very long time. His store is very customer service oriented a he and his workers have always bent over backwards to help people (I've hung out there a lot through the years) That being said, he utterly HATES AutoZone corporate and their policies. I'm not surprised at all they fired that guy.

I agree with hmh ^^^^^. The only real problem is that corporate will not understand why sales are dropping, so they will replace the manager then rearrange the store and tinker with the sales adds. They do need to see emails of why shop owners are boycotting the stores, not just a hand full but a truck load or five.

The only thing that I ever get from the zone is spark plugs or an occasional belt or hose. I have 2 good vendors in NAPA and Carquest.

Boycott AutoZone! the man did the right thing, period. had he not done what he did, there is the possiblity the would be robber might have shot both men dead, just so there were no witness's. IMO, yes he definately did do the right thing and for them to fire him, just goes to show the character of their company. let's start a nationwide boycott and send emails on his behalf, expressing our displeasure in their policies. look at what one member started with Bass Pro Shops! maybe we could have the same results if we all get on board and start some sort of action against them.

EDIT: i have sent them an email expressing my displeasure in their actions.
