A national car parts retailer is planning to establish a distribution hub next to an existing town of Union store.

AutoZone intends to construct the new facility on property adjacent to its current location on East Main Street in Endwell.

First General of Southern New York sold the site to AutoZone in March. AutoZone has outlined plans to build a 9,300 square foot addition to the retail store.

The completed complex would have more than 17,900 square feet of space.

AutoZone has been setting up the regional parts distribution hubs across the United States in an effort to make more vehicle parts available to customers.

The Endwell hub will supply between 15 and 20 AutoZone stores in New York and Pennsylvania. Most of the stores are in the Binghamton area. The AutoZone shop in Mansfield, Pennsylvania also will be served by the new hub.

A manager said 20 to 25 people are to be hired for the hub operation.

Demolition of the former First General building - which previously was a Mister Donut shop - could start as soon as June 20. The hub operation is expected to open in August.
