Fountain Tire moves to a new location in Richmond, B.C.

Oct. 15, 2007

Fountain Tire, the 132-store chain based in Edmonton, Alberta, has moved its Richmond, British Columbia, location.

The new, modern facility is formerly a Blue Max Automotive outlet. It boasts state-of-the-art equipment that will allow staff to serve

customers more efficiently, according to Store Manager Dean Langner.

"We have been renovating the Blue Max location since early September,

and we are eager to re-open as Fountain Tire," says Langner. He believes that "an outstanding service experience" for the consumer includes the following:

* offering quality products.

* posting competitors ads in-store for customers to shop and compare.

* employing licensed automotive technicians.

Known for offering Goodyear and Dunlop brand tires and its mechanical

services, Fountain Tire is one of western Canada's largest tire dealers.

Fountain Tire was named one of The Financial Post's "Top 50 Best Managed Companies in Canada" in 2007, the 14th consecutive year it has received that honor.
