The Napa Auto Parts store on South Farr Road in Spokane Valley is moving across Sprague Avenue to a new store at 9707 E. Sprague Ave.

Store manager Celeste Jensen said the new store – which is still under construction – will be the first Napa store of its kind in the Northwest.

“It will have an updated retail area and new product lines for walk-in customers,” Jensen said. The store is an $862,000 project and is being built by Meridian Construction, of Spokane Valley.

At 8,000 square feet, the new store will be the biggest Napa branch in the Spokane area, Jensen said.

A few blocks east on Sprague Avenue, O’Reilly Auto Parts is getting ready to move into its new store on the northwest corner of Sprague and Bowdish Road. The 15,300-square-foot building at 11409 E. Sprague Ave. has been under construction since the fall. It will open Tuesday.

O’Reilly is headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, and has nearly 4,600 stores in 44 states.

Napa is headquartered in Atlanta and has more than 5,800 stores, including nine branches in Spokane and Spokane Valley.

Jensen said the store’s current lease is up in May and that’s when they hope to move.
