The former Michaels' store attached to the West Allis Home Depot at 11135 W. National Ave., could soon be home to an O’Reilly Auto Parts location.
A limited liability company affiliated with the auto parts retailer recently purchased the property adjacent to the Home Depot store for $3.12 million, according to state property transfer records.
The property has been vacant since sometime in 2019, when art and crafts retailer Michaels announced it would not be renewing its lease at the building.
Reached this week, a representative for O’Reilly Auto Parts confirmed that the building was in the company’s system but added that the “project” was still very early in the process.
The company currently has 132 stores in Wisconsin, according to its website, including an existing store in West Allis at 1357 S. 108th St.
