Finding that one part to make your vehicle run its best just got a little easier, as O’Reilly Auto Parts recently opened its store at 3246 Ind. 32, Westfield.

Manager Rick Pletcher said the store can help owners find parts for cars, industrial trucks, and even farm equipment.

“We’ve got availability to get everything for parts and accessories,” he said. He added that the store has even sold parts for a helicopter engine.

Pletcher said the store’s accessibility to items is what separates it from other auto parts stores.

Inside the store, you’ll find a 50/50 mix of commercial and do-it-yourself items and a full line of accessories and performance parts. If the store doesn’t have a part, they can order it from their warehouse in Brownsburg, which can also provide custom paint mixing and hydraulic hose creation.

“If we don’t have the part in-store, we can have it in a couple hours,” he said. “We can also order from the vendor if our warehouse doesn’t have it.”

The store has more than 208,000 parts in stock.

“It takes 12 guys and eight hours to do inventory,” said employee Earl Johns.

The Westfield store is the second O’Reilly location in Hamilton County – the other being in Fishers.

“We are the largest store in the metropolitan area,” Johns said.

“It’s a great location with easy access in and out,” added Pletcher.

The store’s new computer system also allows employees to pull up information on vehicle parts dating all the way back to 1942. O’Reilly also has welding equipment, tools, and auto body items at the store.

The store is open 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call 804-7590.
