To little fanfare, O’Reilly Auto Parts opened on January 2 at its new location at 13110 Holmes Rd. in Martin City. The opening just missed the lucrative Christmas shopping season.
“The opening was pushed back for the stockholder’s sake,” says store manager Kyle Macey. “We can only open 200 stores a year. And they had already reached that for 2018.”
A ribbon cutting and grand opening is planned for the first part of February.
The 7,200 square foot building began construction in late spring. The undeveloped property, located next to QuikTrip, was purchased in 2017. Freshly landscaped, it is a welcomed addition to the Martin City community.
