Riverview’s newest auto parts supplier, O’Reilly Auto Parts, will open in the end of January on U.S. Hwy. 301 N. and Hannaway Dr., according to a company spokesperson.

Founded in 1957 by the O’Reilly family, the company operates more than 4,255 stores in 42 states and continues to grow, making it one of the largest specialty retailers of automotive aftermarket parts, tools, supplies, equipment and accessories in the United States, serving both professional service providers and do-it-yourself customers. Pennzoil, Mobil 1 and Monroe Shocks are available.

Replacement and performance parts, accessories, tools, fluid and more will be in stock. Top brands services at most stores include used oil and battery recycling, battery testing, electrical and module testing, loaner tool program, drum/rotor resurfacing and more.

“While I do not see a need for another auto parts store in Riverview, I will definitely give them a try,” said John Gibson of Riverview. “Competition is always good.”

At O’Reilly, there are always specials that can be found in the company’s ads or on the Website, and gift cards are available.

Customers can earn points for purchases and free shipping is offered on most orders exceeding $75.

Nearby stores are located at 508 W. Martin Luther King Blvd. in Seffner and 3625 E. Hillsborough Ave.

Job seekers can apply online at www.oreillyauto.com. According to the company’s mission statement, O’Reilly will provide a benefit and compensation plan that will attract and keep the kind of people that will enable the company to reach its goals of growth and success.

O’Reilly Auto Parts is located on U.S. Hwy. 301 just south of the American Legion Post 148.

Hours will be 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sunday.
