I have been a faithful patron of Advanced Auto Parts for many-many years. Recently though, the staff at the Stafford VA (610) store seems to have grown an attitude that customers are more of an inconvenience, as opposed to the core of the business.
Rude and condescending seems to be the new management structure at this store. This isn't a one-time-event, I have noticed it over the past year or so, getting worse with each visit. Unprompted, I have heard other guys and gals say the same thing.
I am finished spending my money at Advanced Auto Parts. Best of luck!
