FULTON — Preliminary construction work has started at a site on the west side of the city of Fulton that will be the future home of a new O’Reilly Auto Parts store.
O’Reilly Auto Parts Enterprises LLC purchased the property at 28 W. First St. in Fulton back on May 30, 2017 from Rome Gas Inc. for $350,000, CNYBJ reported in its Aug. 7, 2017 issue. The site was formerly home to Fast Lane Car Wash.
As of Aug. 30 of this year, crews had so far leveled the car-wash structure, as evidenced by the piles of rubble at the construction site, visible in the adjacent photo. Capitol Construction Solutions, Inc., a general contractor firm headquartered near Indianapolis, is working on the project, according to signage at the construction site. Bohler Engineering — a New Jersey–based civil and consulting engineering firm with 26 offices in the U.S., including Rochester and Albany in upstate New York — is also involved in the project.
O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: ORLY) — headquartered in Springfield, Missouri — operates more than 5,200 auto-parts retail stores across the U.S. under the name O’Reilly Auto Parts.
The growing chain had no stores in Central New York two years ago when it bought the Fulton property. O’Reilly Auto Parts has since opened stores in Solvay and Oswego this summer.
The 28 W. First St. property, situated, on 0.61 acres, is assessed at $350,000 for 2019 and has a total market value of $360,825, according to Oswego County’s digital property records.
