here's the website..

http://www.autobacsusa.com/dev/index.php

(note, this is not the 'real' website, rather its what they have created so far but have not yet 'released' to the public.. hence the URL ../dev/..')

If you go to www.autobacsusa.com, it just says under development

Also, I read a press release from the construction company that built their store.. the construction company said that the Stanton CA store is the "test" for the US market.. if it does well, they may open up to 12 more stores.. sounds crazy..
here's a quote from the press release:

--
This August, Japan's leading auto accessories chain, Autobacs, will open it's first store in Stanton,California, thanks to the efforts of Jed Bohn, Bob Boyle, Jesse Deyden, Carrie Russell and KathyTombor. The initial store is serving as Autobacs' test market. If the Stanton Autobacs performs well, theyplan to infiltrate Orange County with twelve more stores and then expand throughout the United States.Thus, presenting Snyder Langston with the potential opportunity to construct these additional stores.

The Autobacs store encompasses 43,500 square feet and includes 4,300 square feet of office space, tohouse Autobac's North American corporate headquarters. Autobacs caters to individuals looking forunique, high end car accessories, such as custom wheels, tires, car audio, car navigation systems andinterior accessories. For customer convenience, the store contains an onsite garage with pit services.This enables customers to have their accessories installed at the time of purchase. Patrons will also beable to view the installation process from a 100-foot catwalk, which is attached to the mezzanine wait-ing area. A conference room on the mezzanine level will serve as a meeting room for car clubs and befurnished with automobile memorabilia.
--
Also, word on the street is that Autobacs spent $10 million just in construction.. they're going to have to either do a lot of business or charge really high prices to make back that money..

I called this morning and OPENING DAY is the 28th. :p The guy at Irvine Subaru told me that in the previous weeks, they had Supra, Impreza, and Acura meets or something. Grand opening should have a party type environment...

I can't sleep until then...
