Family-owned tire retailer honored with a Silver Award for its social media presence


CINCINNATI (March 10, 2017) – Family-owned and operated Tire Discounters, the nation’s eighth-largest independent tire retailer, was honored with a 2017 ADDY Award for its creative executions of brand advertising across social media.


The American Advertising Awards, commonly known as the ADDYs, is the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local AAF Club (Ad Club) competitions. Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local Ad Club phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards recognition as the very best in their markets.


“We’re extremely honored and humbled to be recognized with this award,” said Abbey Dryden, VP of Marketing for Tire Discounters. “Successful social media execution is integral to building strong, trusted relationships with our customers – which we pride ourselves on developing every day. I’m so proud of our team and their efforts.”


With 40 years of business under its belt, Tire Discounters is renowned for its tongue-in-cheek changeable copy signs and clever, quirky approach to advertising – highlighting animal mascots with puns that have garnered a laugh from even the most stoic onlookers. On social media, Tire Discounters listens intently, it responds quickly, and sometimes does something a little unexpected, like answer customer questions in the form of a changeable copy sign or funny GIF.
