Advance Auto Parts Coming to Belpre

Washington Boulevard is under construction.

An empty plot of land across from Wendy's, that is.

Belpre Mayor Mike Lorentz says they expected that once the dirt started moving and the equipment started showing up there would be curiosity about what's going on.

"That would be an Advance Auto Parts store," Lorentz says. "They've been coming in and out of town for roughly a year. They've decided on that spot. Of course we have to raise it out of the flood plain for them not to have to require the more expensive flood insurance."

The mayor says they're going to build right on through the winter.

There's been concern because there's already an auto parts store in the area but he says it's just another piece of vacant ground soon to be filled and the city welcomes all new business.
