Heartland Tire Inc. has acquired five stores in the Minneapolis metro area. The company now operates 11 outlets in Minnesota.

The company purchased three Galaxy Auto Centers and two Goodyear Tire and Service stores. Heartland outlets are now serving the communities of Brooklyn Park, Columbia Heights, Spring Lake Park, Ramsey and Champlin, Minn.

The five new stores in the Heartland Tire franchise, all part of the Goodyear Tire & Service Network, will focus primarily on auto repair and tire sales and service.

The company says its headquarters in Brainerd and locations in Little Falls, St. Cloud, Wadena and New Ulm, MN, will continue to service commercial trucks, off-the-road vehicles, and farm equipment.

The company will also continue to provide all tire retreading services for their other locations as well as customers across the Midwest region from its Brainerd headquarters.

“Heartland Tire has developed a reputation across Minnesota of delivering top quality service and repair, and we’re excited have this opportunity to deliver that same quality of service to the Twin Cities area,” says Adam Kay, corporate operations manager.

“It’s our hope that these acquisitions serve as a catalyst for future growth across the state of Minnesota, and potentially other regions as well.”

For over 30 years, Heartland Tire has been providing auto and truck repair, tire sales and service, tire retreading, and off-the-road and farm equipment repair to the Central Minnesota area.

David Mitchell is president of the family-owned and operated company. Other executives are Beau Mitchell, general manager, Shannon Bergman, vice president of off the road and commercial, Joe Cramer, vice president of logistics, Teri Kurth, corporate controller, and Kay.
