O’Reilly Auto Parts is “Open For Biz”

News 13 This Morning

As the rebuilding continues around The Panhandle from Hurricane Michael, we are slowly getting back to a resemblance of what some things looked like pre-storm.

News 13 is continuing to keep an eye on local businesses as they re-open.

In this week’s Open For Biz, sponsored by GED Lawyers, Chris Marchand focused on O’Reilly Auto Parts.

O’Reilly Auto Parts had two locations destroyed by Hurricane Michael. The 15th Street location was completely destroyed and had to start from the ground up. The Parker location had the roof ripped off and all the inventory exposed to the elements.

When staff returned to the Parker store after the storm, one of their first tasks was going through the inventory and trying to save anything that didn’t get wet.

Parker store manager Mike Thomas said since they have been back open, things started out slow but the community as a whole is finding out they are back open.

“We’ve been getting a lot of good feedback, everybody is glad we’re back open. Things are not back to normal like we would like to see it [but] it will get there in time,” Thomas said. “We are starting to seeing a little more of the military coming back in, so that’s gonna be a big help.”

Both O’Reilly stores are back operating at normal business hours which are 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
