About Us

It started with two men - C.F. and Chub O’Reilly. Together, they had the courage and the confidence to strike out on their own. They gathered together 11 others who shared the same desire to offer great customer service and auto parts availability and opened the doors of O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. on December 2, 1957.

Now, more than 57 years later, the more than 72,000 team members at O’Reilly Auto Parts are proud of the growth and success we’ve experienced over the years.

During our early years, we focused on sales and slow and steady growth. At the end of our first year, sales totaled $700,000, and by 1961 these sales reached $1.3 million. For the first seven years of operation, our first store in Springfield, MO was our only store until the second one opened in July 1965.By March of 1975, we had nine stores, annual sales of $7 million, and opened our new 48,000 square-foot warehouse, also in Springfield.

The long range plans and stability of the company were solidified by a public offering of company stock in April 1993. Since that time, the Company has grown through the opening of new stores, as well as through numerous mergers and acquisitions. We currently operate stores in 43 states, including Alaska and Hawaii.

Dramatic changes in technology, inventory control, facilities, and sheer size mark the O’Reilly growth and success story. But, it is our spirit of teamwork - how important it was then and how important it remains now - that drives our performance. The company values and culture that started with a man and his father remain evident and strong in the growth and success of today’s Team O’Reilly.

We serve two distinct customer bases - the professional (installer) customers who provide auto repair services to their customers (DIFM - do it for me), and retail ”walk-in” customers (DIY - do it yourself). This dual-market strategy continues to differentiate us from our competition and is a major factor in our ongoing success. Depending on the store’s professional versus retail customer mix, over 95% of our locations have team members who are dedicated to our professional customers, offering them separate counters, phone lines, and a delivery fleet in excess of 12,190 vehicles. We also have a professional sales team, consisting of territory sales managers and in-store sales specialists, responsible for calling on our professional customers and building sound business partnerships that ensure O’Reilly is the First Call for their auto parts needs.

O’Reilly Auto Parts intends to be the automotive aftermarket industry leader, and we realize that this goal can only be accomplished with the help of our team members. A philosophy has evolved within O’Reilly with regard to how team members are treated and how they treat others. We call this our “O’Reilly Culture” and it can be summed up by the following business philosophy:

The O’Reilly Culture...Our COMMITMENT to Our Customers and Our Team Members.



At O’Reilly Auto Parts, we are committed to diversity and inclusion. Each day the people of our diverse communities come through our stores, distribution centers, or corporate office expecting and deserving the highest quality customer service and professionalism. Our team members, more than 68,000 strong, reflect the diverse population we serve. We want our stores, DCs, and corporate office to mirror the communities we work and live in. We have a commitment to inclusion and an understanding that our varied backgrounds and experiences are a source of great strength.

Having diversity is the opportunity for team members’ personal growth. Team members who acknowledge differences in their co-workers also often find similarities as well. This is particularly true when they share common goals, such as production and quality. Respect for co-workers reduces the likelihood of conflict and/or facilitates an easier road to conflict resolution.

As we interact with people from other cultures in the workplace, diversity helps remind us to honor beliefs and sensibilities that are not necessarily our own. Unless we become aware of cultural diversity in its many forms, relationships can die (or never begin) simply for the lack of understanding. As we build diversity, not only can we foster productive interactions and agreements, but it also allows us to construct bridges to trust, respect, and understanding across cultures and within a multicultural workplace.
