Sullivan Tire Co. Inc. helped customers celebrate the green by saving it on St. Patrick’s Day. The company treated hundreds of its customers to free oil changes on the holiday.
While most customers were tipped off about the surprise through a postcard in the mail, others were pleasantly surprised when they arrived to have their car serviced.
"There's a fair amount of Irish in the Sullivan Tire family, so what better way to celebrate the holiday than by thanking our loyal customers," said Paul Sullivan.
Based in Norwell, Mass., Sullivan Tire has 66 locations in New England and is No. 11 on the 2013 MTD 100.
