The North Carolina Tire Dealers Association and the Independent Garage Owners Association are merging to form a new entity called the Automotive Service and Tire Alliance, which will have nearly 800 members in total.
Tom Greco, Advance Auto Parts Inc.’s CEO and president, will be the keynote speaker at the North Carolina Tire Dealers Association (NCTDA) 2018 Expo and Trade Show’s Friday night opening banquet on March 2, 2018. The event will be held at the Raleigh City Center Marriott & Convention Center.
John Baratta recently told independent tire dealers in North Carolina that on any given day, 5,500 tire-buying customers will visit their stores. However, another 3,500 won’t, choosing instead to go to car dealerships or other competitors.
