Auto Zone takes shape at Murray/Cornell
Parking will be behind the store on the east and south sides of the building. The exterior will be two stories tall, as required by our Town Center ordinance, but there will be no second floor.
Pohlman says, "This store will hire about ten AutoZoners, seven full-time and three part-time. A manager has not been named."
The nearest Auto Zone is in Aloha, about four miles away. Pohlman notes, "We have a rather rigorous process whereby we locate and develop store locations. The trade area for this new store is chock-full of out-of-warranty vehicles, five years old and older, which is our sweet spot. 85% of AutoZone's business is retail, catering to the do-it-yourselfer."
We look forward to welcoming this new business into the community, and we hope that they'll join the Business Association and participate in the community in other ways.
*NOTE: Oregon Communities for a Voice in Annexation (ocva.org) is now taking aim against this type of "hostage annexation." Several bills are currently being considered in the legislature (HB 2945, 3056, 3144).
