Poppe Automotive Warehouse, located on S. Alamo steet in San Antonio TX, was founded in 1927 by T.E. Poppe. Mr. James M. Black III later purchased the firm in 1977 and relocated the warehouse to where it is today at 716 S. Frio Street, San Antonio TX. Under the direction of Mr. Black, Poppe Automotive Warehouse has experienced steady growth over the last 38 years. 

Capitol Auto Parts was founded in Austin, Texas and has enjoyed a long and rich history.  Mr. T.E. Poppe and Mr. Emzy Schneider originally opened it in the late 1940’s as a jobber store of Poppe Automotive Warehouse, INC. 

The origin of the Parts Plus marketing name can be traced back to a series of jobber programs created in 1957 by Parts, Inc., a Memphis-based warehouse distributor. In 1977, 13 member warehouses formed AAAD, together marketing the Parts Plus brand.
