OSWEGO — Advance Auto Parts is moving just down the road.
The auto parts and accessories chain will occupy the spaces recently vacated by businesses Olympia Sports and Verizon Wireless in the Price Chopper Plaza at 135 state Route 104.
“It will be relocating from their existing location (in Oswego’s Wal-Mart plaza) where they’ve been for 25 years plus and moving into this new location, putting together the most current prototypical store design in that location,” said Michael Wachs, of Oswego Associated LLC, which owns the Price Chopper and Oswego plazas.
Verizon recently moved across the plaza parking lot and now sits adjacent to Price Chopper and TJ Maxx while Olympia Sports closed up shop. Wachs said the Advance Auto project is moving rapidly and could be done in as soon as 90 days.
Wachs wouldn’t comment on the lease’s length, but said Advance Auto is “recommitting themselves to Oswego in a very substantial manner.”
Once completed, both the buildings with Price Chopper and with Advance Auto and Game Stop will be full to capacity with tenants.
Across the street at the Oswego Plaza, Wachs pointed out that JCPenney has been given an exterior facelift and the Dollar Tree also expanded inside the state Route 104 facility.
