New Business Coming to Wintersville

Posted: Updated:
WINTERSVILLE, Ohio -

Another property in Jefferson County has sold and a new business is moving in.

The building sat vacant for two years along Main Street in Wintersville since the McDonald's chain built a new restaurant in front of the Reisbeck's store. Now, a Missouri based chain called O'Reilly Auto Parts plans to demolish the old building to build a store on the property. 

Mayor Bob Gale said O'Reilly Auto Parts will be hiring 10 to 15 full and part time positions.

"I think it's a positive step any time we can bring jobs into the county, whether it be Wintersville, Steubenville or Toronto." he says. "We want to see jobs come here."

Gale says there are plenty of properties with potential in Wintersville that are for sale.

There are currently over 4,000 O'Reilly Auto Parts stores nationwide. 115 of them are in Ohio.
