Larry’s Auto Parts
in Goleta Serving
Santa Barbara Area
Larry’s 8 Day Auto Parts also known as Larry’s Auto Parts was started in 1976. The storewas opened at this location by Larry Cannady as Larry’s Foreign Auto Supply specializing in parts for foreign cars. In 1981 Phil and Jackie Unander partnered with Joe Lastra Sr. and purchased the store from Larry. In 1983 Phil and Jackie bought Joe out of the business and expanded to include domestic parts. We wanted a name that would reflect what we did but because the name “7 Day Auto Parts” was already taken we choose Larry’s 8 Day Auto Parts to reflect who we were, that we were always open (90 hours a week then) and sold parts for all cars. In 2008 we added RV parts and accessories to our business to further our offering to you.
We are proudly the oldest locally owned auto parts store in the Santa Barbara and Goleta area. We have and will always continue to base our business on supplying to our customers the highest level of quality parts and superior service. Our counter staff has over 140 years of combined experience and although our primary supplier is Car Quest Auto Parts, we use many additional suppliers to supply our needs. All of the parts we stock or source for you must be of the highest quality and from the most reliable suppliers. Our goal is to provide you, our customer with the best value for your dollar. In some cases this does not mean the cheapest price, but we stand by our belief that even in these challenging economic times, value still wins.
We sell wholesale to many repair shops in the area and offer delivery Monday thru Friday to these shops from Goleta to Montecito. We sell retail to “do it yourselfers” and are open 7 days a week. We offer some machine shop services such as drum and rotor machining and some press operations. We manufacture hydraulic hoses. We offer free battery, charging system and starter testing with battery charging available for a small fee. All of these services are typically available 7 days a week provided we have adequate personnel available
We as a group like to have fun at our jobs and it is not unusual to enter our store and find us laughing with a customer at something. We liken ourselves and our business to the old TV series “Cheers” in which there were many regulars and “everybody knows your name. We always have our coffee pot on and a friendly ear to try and solve your auto related problems.
