U.S. Auto Care has strong September

Oct. 5, 2004

Southfield, Mich.-based U.S. Auto Care LLC finished September with a same store sales increase of 11% over September 2003.

"Sales were strong in the beginning of September, and then seemed to soften," says U.S. Auto Care President Steve Wilson.

"However, the last few days of the month were very strong as many of the stores ran tent sales the last weekend of the month."

The Big O Tires Inc. franchisee is maintaining a 21% sales increase year to date, according to Wilson.

"We are continuing to scour the area for additional locations, with the plan of opening up to two more stores before spring of 2005."
