Investment in brick-and-mortar locations seems an unlikely strategy for combatting online tire sales, shrinking tire margins and a tight labor market. Yet for many dealerships on the 2018 Modern Tire Dealer 100, a larger geographic footprint is essential to compete in today’s retail environment.
Cincinnati, Ohio-based Tire Discounters Inc. added nine stores in the last 12 months. The company says it is continuing to open stores in its existing markets as well as in its newest market, Knoxville, Tenn., later this year.
“Creating a better in-store experience for our customers is a top priority,” says Steven Wood, director of operations. “Our new locations, as well as our remodeled stores, offer modern amenities that promote a positive experience for both the customers and the employees. From increasing our number of service bays that feature state-of-the-art equipment to providing more comfortable waiting areas with convenient Wi-Fi access, our stores allow us to deliver higher standards to our customers.”
The dealership was voted a “Best of Cincinnati” winner by CityBeat magazine readers for the 10th straight year in 2018. Tire Discounters is tied for the No. 7 spot with 112 locations in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.
