The Outer Rim Oreworks Market, or ORO Market, was located on the planet Apatros and served as a place for workers to buy supplies. In 1003 BBY, it was the only store on Apatros.


The Outer Rim Oreworks Market was located on the Outer Rim planet Apatros in the colony of the same name. ORO fastened a black-and-white sign to the wall outside the store that displayed its hours of operation. The ORO Market only stocked basic items, such as supplies for miners and the goods sold at the store were all overpriced. Store credit was available to customers, but it was advanced against future wages, and the interest rates that ORO charged were extremely high. As a result, workers were often forced to take extra shifts in the company's cortosis mines on Apatros to pay off the extra debt they incurred by taking store credit.[1]


The store was owned and operated by the Outer Rim Oreworks Company and was the only store located on Apatros[1] in 1003 BBY.[2] The building the store occupied was once a barracks, but it had been converted into a place for workers to buy supplies. The shower that had been located in the building was converted into a secure storage room, and the bunks had been replaced by shelves.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The ORO Market was mentioned in the novel Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, written by Drew Karpyshyn as the first installment of the Star Wars: Darth Bane Trilogy, published in 2006.[1]
