Some new construction has just started at the south end of town. Crews moved in this week and tore up one of the old car lots. The signs went up a couple of days ago saying that it will soon be the home of a new Auto Zone auto parts store. This is right across the street from O’Reilly Auto Parts, and I’m not so sure that there’s enough demand for two competing auto parts stores in this part of town. It’s hard to make a left turn across the street here, so maybe there will be one store for folks heading north and one for folks heading south.
Good to see that a company has enough confidence in Carson City to give it a go, though. There’s one Auto Zone in town already out Hwy 50 East.
