Griffin Brothers will keep ATD employees

Jan. 13, 2003

Griffin Brothers Tire Sales Inc. will not make any personnel changes at the Lincolnton, N.C., retail store it bought from American Tire Distributors (ATD) last week.

The Lincolnton facility was ATD's (formerly known as The Heafner Tire Group) last retail outlet; its sale marked ATD's complete exit from tire retailing.

Griffin Brothers, which is based in Cornelius, N.C., has five more stores: two in Charlotte, N.C., and one each in Mooresville, Concord and Cornelius, N.C.
