New Martinsville’s newest auto parts store, O’Reilly’s, opens for business.

Smith noted the store has been in the works since March, but a series of problems, which included soil difficulties delayed their completion, however the day finally arrived and they are happy to be open for business.

The store opening on Thursday was not the Grand Opening which is planned for a later date, however Smith who was doubling at the grill frying up burgers, hot dogs and other goodies, said it was something they like to do for the community, and their new employees on opening day.

He added if anyone stops in they can look around, buy some parts or just have a bite to eat. Smith said they are a extremely competitive store price wise and they have what they call the low price guarantee. "It doesn't mean we are going to be the cheapest on everything, but we are going to be competitive, cheaper on some things and maybe more expensive on some, but we are ultra competitive."

"We have delivery service and if our doors are open we will deliver to business and garages," added Smith. "We are looking into residential delivery as well."

Smith said they have added employment to eight people and are looking to hire two or three more. He added all of the employees are either from New Martinsville, Paden City or the general area.

A quick look around the store showed a wide display of auto cleaning supplies, accessories, parts and much more.
