Big O breaks 480 mark
Big O Tires has already met its full-year goal of opening more than 480 retail stores in the United States.
The TBC Corp. subsidiary plans to add up to 10 locations by the end of of the year.
"Our expansion thus far in 2001 has been aided by the acquisition of some stores, but our focus remains on expanding through new franchised locations," says TBC President and CEO Larry Day.
Big O, based in Englewood, Colo., is the third largest tire distribution network in North America, according to Modern Tire Dealer statistics.
