The O’Reilly website says “It’s an exciting time for our
company. Our acquisition of Checker, Schuck’s, and Kragen
Auto Stores has given us the opportunity to introduce the
O’Reilly brand to many new markets. While our name is
new, we’re not new to the auto parts industry. For 52 years,
O’Reilly Auto Parts has helped our customers take care of
their vehicles with fully stocked stores, guaranteed low
prices, and Professional Parts People.
“The things you liked most about your local Checker,
Schuck’s, and Kragen Auto Stores are the same things that
have made O’Reilly Auto Parts successful - convenient locations,
trusted brands, and a knowledgeable staff. You’ll also
like what’s different about O’Reilly Auto Parts - expanded
inventory, lower prices, and same day, or overnight access to
hard to find parts.
“You may have noticed some changes at your local Checker,
Schuck’s, or Kragen Auto Stores. Signs and colors have
changed and the store’s interior layout is different. What you
might not have noticed is that thousands more auto parts and
accessories are now available when you need them. “
