Telle Tire & Auto Centers Inc. has acquired its sixth location of the year, the latest is a single-store operation based in St. Louis, Mo.

The acquisition gives Telle Tire 16 locations in Missouri, including 10 stores in the St. Louis market, one in Jefferson City, and five more in Kansas City.
The Kansas City locations were acquired in March of this year. The KC Complete Auto Service stores have been rebranded as "KC Complete Auto Service, a Telle Tire Co."
