Goodyear to Cut Hours at Company-Owned Stores

Posted on March 23, 2020

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is cutting hours at its Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires stores in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Changes include temporarily reducing store hours to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closing on Sundays,” say Goodyear officials.

“This will enable stores to operate in multiple shifts and limit close personal contact among the store teams and with others where possible, while still meeting current customer demand.”

In addition, in states that “have issued ‘Shelter-in-Place’ or similar non-essential business closure orders, our stores are expected to remain open as auto service providers deliver essential goods and services.”

The company will begin operating under reduced hours on March 25, which will continue for at least two weeks or until further notice
