Courtesy Auto Service and Tire in Tacoma, Wash., is celebrating 10 years in business in 2014. Owner Scott Welsh credits a commitment to taking care of Joint Base Lewis-McChord military service members as a major factor in his shop’s success.
Active-duty, veterans, reserves, retirees and their families are eligible for Courtesy’s military programs.
“We do business with many branches of the military and have supported them in recruiting efforts, fundraising efforts and in other ways. Our business has always put a priority on providing quality service to the military, the service members and their families. We truly appreciate them."
Courtesy has credit plans for all military branches which include financing and same-day servicing of retail installments for military and civil service branches.
"It is important to offer these men and women that serve our country a little extra. That is why we have a published military discount policy and can provide specialized financing for them," says Welsh. "They deserve a little extra because they do so much for our local economy and country in unselfish ways."
Welsh has 31 years of experience in the tire and automotive service business. He is involved in the Tacoma community as well. "I believe it is beneficial for any sized business to provide quality products and services and especially an incredible customer service experience for all its customers. It's very important to have an ethical footprint in the city of Tacoma. I'm very proud and passionate about my business and my community.”
Welsh founded Scott and Suz Inc., which does business as Courtesy Auto Service and Tire of Tacoma, ten years ago. Courtesy is a full service auto repair and tire retailer located at the Tacoma Mall. For more information, visit the company’s website and Facebook page.
