PHILADELPHIA - July 16, 2008 Pep Boys Appoints
James A. Mitarotonda Chairman and
Michael R. Odell to the Board
 

PHILADELPHIA - July 16, 2008 - The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: "PBY"), the nation's leading automotive aftermarket retail and service chain, today appointed James A. Mitarotonda non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors. Mr. Mitarotonda succeeds William Leonard, who resigned from the Board for personal reasons.

Mr. Mitarotonda said, "I am pleased to accept the responsibility of chairing the Board as Pep Boys strives to be the automotive solutions provider of choice for the value-oriented customer. On behalf of all of our Directors, I also want to welcome Mike Odell to the boardroom. He and his leadership team have the Board's full support. Finally, the Board would like to thank Bill Leonard for his stewardship of Pep Boys. During his tenure, he has served Pep Boys faithfully in whatever capacity was needed."

Mr. Leonard said, "I am grateful for having had the opportunity to serve Pep Boys over the last six years as a Director, Interim CEO and Chairman."

Mr. Mitarotonda, 53, has served on Pep Boys' Board since August 2006 and is the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Barington Capital Group, L.P., an investment firm that he co-founded in 1991. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of A. Schulman, Inc. and Griffon Corporation. Collectively with the other members of a Schedule 13D reporting group, Barington is Pep Boys' largest shareholder.

Mr. Odell, 45, joined Pep Boys in September 2007 as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer after spending 13 years at Sears Holdings Corp. His last position at Sears was as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Sears Retail & Specialty Stores, a $26 billion business with 1,900 locations.
