Order Reprints

General Motors Corp. is closing its Saturn dealerships. That opens the door for independent tire dealers.

In his latest B.O.B. blog, Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich relates how a local auto mall is courting him because he owns a Saturn. If the mall owners can do it, he reasons, why can't tire dealers?

"Without Saturn dealerships, there is a void in Saturn repair locations," he writes. "(Tire dealers) can target those vehicles."
