Bridgestone Americas Inc.’s retail division has purchased Phoenix, Ariz.-based Fletcher’s Tire & Auto Service Inc.
Fletcher’s Tire & Auto Service operated 31 outlets in and around Phoenix, including stores in Peoria, Tucson, Chandler and Scottsdale. All of stores are being converted to Firestone Complete Auto Care outlets.
According to an article posted at InMaricopa.com, the acquisition was finalized in March 2017. Modern Tire Dealer called the company’s offices and was told the dealership’s president, Jerry Fletcher, no longer owned any tire stores.
Fletcher’s Tire & Auto Service Inc. was tied for the No. 31 spot in the Modern Tire Dealer 100 rankings of the nation’s largest independent tire dealers. The 2017 Modern Tire Dealer 100 will be released in July.
