BETHESDA, Md. – August 31, 2020 – This edition of Market Insights with Mike highlights several seasonal sales observations, how shop owners are working with their contacts in the distribution system to fulfill end customer needs and provides updated results from the Auto Care Association’s COVID-19 impact survey.

“I’m seeing the same ‘pull yourself up’ determination and adaptation throughout the automotive aftermarket and I’m loving it,” said Mike Chung, director, market intelligence, Auto Care Association.
