Jack Williams Tire Opens a 3rd Store in Lancaster

Jack Williams Tire Co. Inc. has opened its third store in Lancaster, Pa., relocating a store the company acquired three years ago from Lebzelter's Total Car Care.

Jack Williams has moved the former Lebzelter's store in Millersville 3 miles to 2201 Embassy Dr. in a new development in Lancaster.

“We are excited about the upgrade in store and our relocation to the new Lime Spring Square development," says Jason Williams, executive vice president of Jack Williams Tire.

Greg Diritto who has been with Jack Williams Tire for over eight years will continue as general manager of the location. The new store features a modern and customer-focused design, which includes a child-friendly spacious waiting area, free Wi-Fi, an Internet bar and free shuttle service. The location is outfitted with equipment from Hunter Engineering Co., including Road Force wheel balancers, tire changers and drive-on alignment machines.

The location offers a complete inventory of name brand tires and custom wheels and performs auto service and repairs, including state inspection, brakes, wheel alignments, oil changes and maintenance. The store is open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday  and 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m on Saturday.

To celebrate the opening of the new location, Jack Williams Tire is donating a portion of all tire sales from the new store to a local non-profit. And, the company is letting customers choose the charity. Through the end of August, customers who purchase tires and/or service will have the chance to pick which of the Lancaster organizations will receive the donation: Aaron’s Acres, Water Street Mission, Community Action Partnership, Council of the Churches and Schreiber Pediatric Rebab Center

Jack Williams Tire will make the donations. There is no cost to the customer.

This latest store opens as the company looks ahead to its 90th year in business in 2019. Jack Williams Sr. established the company in Kingston, Pa., in 1929 with a $500 loan from his father. The company is in its third generation of operation and has grown into a network of 36 retail locations and 12 warehouses throughout northeastern and central Pennsylvania.

In 2006 Bill Williams was named Modern Tire Dealer's Tire Dealer of the Year. His three children, Scott, Jason and Tracey, now lead the business.
