A further 27 branches of failed supplier Unipart Automotive have been rescued.
Euro Car Parts has bought the sites from KPMG, administrators of the Solihull-based business.
The news follows a rescue deal last month which saw The Parts Alliance and its associate member Andrew Page acquire 33 branches and initially save about 360 jobs which it says has since hit the 500 mark.
Unipart Automotive was headquartered on Birmingham Business Park and operated a network of 180 branches and distribution hubs supplying car parts, workshop consumables and garage equipment.
Mark Orton, Will Wright and Jonny Marston from KPMG were appointed joint administrators to Unipart Automotive Ltd and more than 1,200 jobs were lost.
The deal with The Parts Alliance and Andrew Page saved branches in Walsall, Stafford and Shrewsbury while this latest deal with London-based Euro Car Parts expands its branch network to 194 although none of those sites rescued are in the West Midlands.
Chief executive Martin Gray said: "We are delighted to have acquired these 27 branches and may yet acquire more.
"Over the last few days, we have been working hard to identify which locations fit into our growth strategy.
"This deal clearly demonstrates our determination to deliver industry-leading levels of service and availability.
"Most importantly, we are optimistic that many ex-Unipart employees from these locations will now join Euro Car Parts.
"We look forward to helping them to continue their aftermarket careers and bring an end to the uncertainty and stress these past weeks have brought them and their families.
"In addition to the site acquisitions, we are also thrilled to announce that last week alone we made offers to over 100 ex-Unipart employees."
The 27 locations are as follows: Acton, Avonmouth, Ayr, Bangor, Bath, Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Dundee, Dunfirmline, Elgin, Enfield, Folkestone, Grantham, Guildford, Keighley, Kendal, Llandudno, Loughborough, Newark, Norwich, Perth, Sittingbourne, Sunderland, Swansea, Wigan, Worthing and Wrexham.
