A new AutoZone is going to open in Goddard along Kellogg near 183rd Street.

A spokesman for the Memphis-based company says he doesn’t have a specific address yet.

The store is scheduled to open in late April.

It’ll be 7,000 square feet, which is a typical size for the chain.

The store will employee about a dozen “AutoZoners,” which is what employees are called, about 70 percent of whom will be full time.

The new Goddard AutoZone is one of about 150 the company will open in 2018.

He 'can't say no to a car'

Roger Brown says, “I can’t say no to a car,” Included in his fleet of vehicles are a 1969 Camaro, a 1960 Corvette, a 1969 Chevelle SS, and a 1999 Corvette. Not everything is of GM manufacture, though, as waiting in the wings for restoration are a 1968 Dodge Charger and a 1969 Plymouth GTX. There’s even a ’40 Ford coupe with a flathead V-8 awaiting his touch. (Video by Mike Berry)
