Auto parts store to replace old Hardee’s
City staff has been working with representatives from O’Reilly Auto Parts for about four months to redevelop the .72-acre site at the northeast corner of Court and Arch streets.
The store will be replaced with a 7,800-square-foot building.
O’Reilly Auto Parts has 1,830 locations in 26 states. The closest stores to Janesville are in Madison and Machesney Park.
The site and the Hardee’s building have been eyesores for some time, Brad Cantrell, community development director, said.
“We’re seeing some of this redevelopment, which are very good things for older development corridors.”
He pointed to the new Family Video and Walgreens stores on the south side to illustrate his point.
