Tavis Nowack and his crew at O'Reilly Auto Parts have been serving customers for a few months now in Northfield.

With Northfield Mayor Dana Graham, members of the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce, staff members and a few people from the community on hand, Nowack cut the ribbon in front of the store, officially opening the business.

O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. is one of the largest specialty retailers of automotive aftermarket parts, tools, supplies, equipment and accessories in the United States, serving both the do-it-yourself and professional markets. Founded in 1957 by the O’Reilly family, the Company operates over 4,200 stores in 42 states.

The auto parts store at 1000 Hwy. 3 South is next to Culver’s and was the location of the former Northfield Athletic Club.
