Discount Tire plans to expand into Pennsylvania. The first store will open in the Pittsburgh market.

The company did not specify where the Pittsburgh-area store will be located or when it is expected to open. However, the Discount Tire told MTD the new stores are expected to be new construction and property acquisition for the stores is underway.

In addition, Discount Tire says it will be announcing more stores in Pennsylvania markets.

Since 2013, Discount Tire has expanded into ten new states, including a recent investment in new tire store locations in Virginia.

Discount Tire sells a wide selection of tire brands including Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, BFGoodrich, Pirelli, Falken, Continental and Cooper along with exclusive brands such as Arizonian, Road Hugger and Pathfinder. For more information, visit discounttire.com.
