Sullivan Tire Co. Inc. has opened the first of two new stores this summer in Massachusetts, giving the company 73 retail locations in New England.

Sullivan Tire dba Sullivan Tire and Auto Service, acquired the assets of David's Tire and Auto, 898 Turnpike St., in Canton, Mass. The store opened on June 10, 2019, with 5,000 square-feet of space and eight service bays. The store will remain open during renovations this summer.
