Discount Tire strengthens North Carolina presence

May 5, 2004

North America's largest independent tire dealership, Discount Tire Co. Inc., is building two outlets in North Carolina, which will bring the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company's total number of stores in that state up to nine.

Both outlets will be located in the Winston-Salem area.

The first -- a 7,260-square-foot facility with six bays -- is scheduled to open on Aug. 2, 2004.

The second is slated to open the following month; it will be 7,850-square-feet.

Construction on both outlets is underway, according to Discount Tire officials.

Discount, which has more than 525 stores, opened its first outlet in North Carolina in 1999.
