An auto-parts store opened a brand new location in Zanesville Wednesday…

O’Reilly Auto Parts held the grand opening for its second Zanesville location Wendesday morning. The store itself has been operating since 1957, and has close to 3800 locations open nationwide.

"We’re not a new company, however, we are still fairly new to Zanesville. Right now, the store employs about 11 team members from the Muskingum County area, with probably about a little over 100 years of experience between all of them," said District Manager Mark Brown.

The new store, located on Maple Avenue next to Donato’s, has seen plenty of customers come through the doors since it opened 45 days ago.

"We’re getting more and more everyday. It’s building up… We held off on the grand opening and then once we got everything up and running, we’re comfortable now with the grand opening," said Store Manager Marty Dumolt.

As their own way of giving back to the community, O’Reilly presented a check to Good Will Charities during Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.
