(the "Company" or "O'Reilly") (Nasdaq: ORLY), a leading retailer in the automotive aftermarket industry, announces a change in the location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

The previously announced date and time of the meeting, May 14, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. Central Time, has not changed.
The meeting will be accessible to shareholders at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ORLY2020 using the 16-digit control number on their proxy card, voting instruction form, or Important Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials. O'Reilly has designed the format of the Annual Meeting to ensure that shareholders are afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate as they would at an in-person meeting.
