Posted on May 6, 2014

The Reinalt-Thomas Corp., doing business as Discount Tire/America's Tire, announced it has opened its third tire store in Tulsa, Oklahoma and its 13th in the state. The new store is located at 13321 E. 116th St. N.

Providing the lowest prices on tires and wheels combined with excellent customer service, Discount Tire says it strives to serve as its customers’ knowledgeable and convenient neighborhood tire retailer. The 6,947 square-foot store is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

“Discount Tire is proud to expand in this community. Not only are we providing our customers a needed service for tires in Tulsa, Okla., but we are also creating jobs for those that want to work for a great company,” said James Hopf, store manager of the new Discount Tire. Hopf joined the company 14 years ago in Dallas, Texas.

The new store in Oklahoma will operate with 15 employees, 10 of which are new jobs in the community.

“As we expand our presence, we are continuing to grow and seek opportunities to serve communities like Tulsa,” said John LeJuene, regional vice president for Discount Tire. “People are looking for a reliable tire retailer, such as Discount Tire, and we are pleased to be doing business in the Tulsa community to ensure residents have a tire expert to educate them about the basics of tire safety.”
