I've really gotten tired of going to AZone and Advance Auto only to dicover only two attendants are working the 6 registers and both are assisting patrons with parts. Recently i visited a new O'Reilly store for the fist time and hallelujah!! Every register was manned (5) and one was strictly reserved for checkout. That makes a huge difference. Not to mention they carry WIX oil/air filters.

One just opened up recently in my town as well. First one I've ever seen in the MA/RI area but recently I've spotted a couple more.

Went in a couple of weeks ago to grab a bottle of Purple Ice. First thing I noticed was how clean it was, second, how well staffed it was, thirdly, no customers in the store and lastly they carried a lot more brands of products than AZ and AAP.

I loved the fact they carry all Royal Purple products including their HPS and XPR line of oil which I have never seen anyone carry!

Yes, here too. The store was extremely clean (opened last Oct) and stocks more brands than the competition.

We have both but they are small stores Ö And a Napa and CQ Indy Ö
Each is a bit unique in product offerings Ö in small towns the staff does not turn over too much so some good experience

I have an O'Reilly, Autozone, NAPA, and a few other Mom and Pop parts stores within a few miles of me. And for my oil needs a Walmart right up the road.

I will say that the employees at my local O Reilly's are the best I have dealt with. Far better than Advance Auto parts. There are some good people at AAP. However, there are a lot more slackers and Champions at AAP in which to deal with.

Maybe it was staffed heavy because its a new store,and they wanted a positive response from a customer like you got.Wait until the numbers show they don't need so many people and they decide to run it on a shoestring budget...then you will see what the others have to live with...less.

I was just going to say the new store is fully staffed and that will change.

A/O now I believe there are no O'Reilly AP in New Jersey.
I set foot in one in North Carolina just to se what oil they had.
I showed the employees where A3,B3 was on the bottle (M1 0W-40 EF) and what it meant (turbos).
That they listened impressed me. I am a "to the point" communicator".

I'm a big RockAuto user, but when I need a part immediately, my choice is O'Reilly over Autozone. (The two local NAPA stores are closed on Saturday afternoon and Sundays)
One rule I always follow is to research the part needed on their web page first and you must know what you need ahead of time. The counter help relies on their computer only and are otherwise clueless. The manager of the local O'Reilly's store is the only person in there who knows anything about cars and he doesn't work most Saturdays or Sundays.

I prefer O'Reilly's over Autozone, but they are both expensive. I order from Amazon quite a bit lately.
