The entire team from the McCarthy Tire Service store at 2720 Valley Ave. will move to the Kent Street location. The final day of operations on Valley Ave. is Tuesday, June 25. All customer records will be transferred.

Thaddeus Brown, the long-time manager of the Valley Ave. location, has been promoted to retail manager of the combined operations.
