Our Story

this is who we are

Church’s Auto Parts started out as a Speed Shop in 1976 By Rich Church and his brothers Ray and Roger. It mainly was a hobby business to help support the Drag Racing that we did in the 70’s and we sponsored and raced with customers. In the late 70’s the gas crunch was starting to hit and many people were not into high performance as they were so in 1979 it was decided to bring another brother Bob into the business . Bob came into the Business and along with Roger and Rich decided that Auto Parts were the way to go and Bob bought his 10 years of Auto Parts experience and we sold Auto parts along with speed parts thru the 80’s.

In 1990 we lost brother Rich in a tragic Drag Racing accident and Roger and Robert decided to continue on with the family business and over the 1990’s business soared. We added delivery trucks, employees and concentrated on the needs of Repair Shops and customers in Delaware County. As other parts stores were closing we were always making changes and adapting to the needs of the Automotive industry.

In 2004 we decided to open our second location in Springfield Pa. we operated 2 places for about 4 years and grew the business to great numbers but it was time to expand again. In 2008 we had to opportunity to take over a family business in Drexel Hill and Church’s Auto Parts had 3 locations and over 30 delivery trucks and 70+ employees.
