Community Wholesale Tire lives up to its name
Community Wholesale Tire Inc. hosted an "Open House, Trade Show and Dealer Meeting" at its Hazelwood, Mo., warehouse on May 14, 2011.
The company celebrated not only its 76th year in business, but also the recent 60,000-square-foot addition to the warehouse. A crowd of 650 people -- representing dealers in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Kansas -- attended the event.
Highlights of the event included:
* tours of the 250,000-square-foot facility;
* a massive trade show featuring 33 suppliers;
* training seminars; and
* racing and show car displays.
There were also sports celebrity appearances by former St. Louis Cardinal pitcher Danny Cox and the Cardinal's mascot, Fredbird.
The day-long event was capped off with a German-style BBQ dinner with appearances by the Clydesdales at Grant’s Farm, a unique and popular Anheuser-Busch property in St. Louis. Community Wholesale Tire is a third-generation family owned regional tire distributor with warehouses in St. Louis and Kansas City. It has annual sales of $100 million.
