New auto parts store powers up in Canby
Canby's vacant land near Panda Express is taking shape as of late and will soon be occupied by a brand new Auto Zone store.
"It's all approved and they're starting construction," said Canby's Associate Planner Dave Epling. "Everything is going forward."
Auto Zone is leasing the space from property owner Ray Lovell. They will be taking over a 36,011 square-foot portion of the parcel and constructing a 7,345 square-foot commercial building, according to Epling.
The new auto parts store will be the third of its type on Canby's stretch of Highway 99E, the others being Napa Auto Parts and O'Reilly Auto Parts.
"It looks like a real good project," Epling said, "and I think they'll do well there in my opinion."
