ALBION – Workers from the NAS Sign Company in Buffalo are in Albion today working on the signs for the new Advance Auto Parts. The store will be located in a former Rite Aid store at the northeast corner of routes 98 and 31.

Advance Auto has painted parts of the building and put new blacktop in the parking lot.

On Wednesday, Advance Auto announced it was getting bigger by acquiring General Parts International, a privately held parts maker, for $2.04 billion in  cash.
