Millersburg Tire marks 55 years in business
Millersburg (Ohio) Tire Service is celebrating its 55th year in business this week with various festivities, including a ribbon-cutting for its new showroom.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony, which included several representatives from Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC, the dealership's primary supplier, took place yesterday.
Schmucker says several hundred people from Millersburg and neighboring towns attended the event. "I probably shook hands with 500 people yesterday!" he says.
"The community has been so good to us. This celebration isn't about us; it's about thanking the community. And it's a tribute to our employees."
As part of the anniversary celebration, Millersburg Tire is selling raffle tickets to support two area charities: The Love Center, a food pantry, and Rainbows of Hope, an organization that transports people to hospitals.
"I probably shook 400 or 500 hands yesterday," says President Brad Schmucker.
