No problem. But seriously, go to any mechanic that'* not a crap chain and ask them where they order parts from...4 outta 5 times it will probably be O Reilly

You can buy good brake parts at O'Reilly'*, and you can buy bad. Its not the store you buy from, its the brand you buy. If you buy the cheap stuff, you get what you pay for.

I never had a problem with anything I bought from O'Reillys, but I take time to research the brand they carry. If I want to buy Raybestos brake pads (for example), I don't care if they are from O'Reillys, Autozone, Napa, Walmart, Canadian Tire or Ebay, I know I am getting good parts.

Pick the brand you want, and find who sells it at the lowest price.
