New Kensington, Pa. – Recent wet weather has slowed the building of the new O”Reilly Auto Parts store along Tarentum Bridge Road in New Kensington as store owners are hoping for a late fall grand opening.
With the recent pouring of a concrete footer around the perimeter of the store, workers had to wait until the grounds dried up just a little before work could begin on the steel framework and roof trusses. The flat roof is now on and one end wall is closed in as of August 4, 2019.
O’Reilly Auto Parts is an American auto parts retailer that provides automotive aftermarket parts, tools, supplies, equipment, and accessories in the United States serving both the professional service providers and do-it-yourself customers.
