SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Discount Tire, the world’s independent largest tire and wheel retailer, opened its first tire store in Cleveland.

The new store is located at 4521 Hardwick Farms Parkway, off Stuart Road.

Providing the lowest prices on tires and wheels combined with excellent customer service, Discount Tire strives to serve as its customers’ knowledgeable and convenient neighborhood tire retailer.

The 6,947-square-foot store is located near Stuart Road and Highway 11. It is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The store is closed Sundays.

“Discount Tire is proud to expand in this community. Not only are we providing our customers a needed service for tires in Cleveland, Tenn., but we are also creating jobs for those who want to work for a great company,” said Alex Rachetts, store manager of the new Discount Tire.

Rachetts has been with the company for 13 years.

The new store in Tennessee will operate with 18 employees, 13 of which are new jobs in the community. Discount Tire is committed to promoting from within but is always looking for qualified individuals to join the company in its exceptional growth.

“As we expand our presence, we are continuing to grow and seek opportunities to serve communities like Cleveland,” said Jeff Wegner, regional vice president for Discount Tire.

“The need for tires is always growing and it is more important than ever to ensure the Cleveland community has a tire expert to educate them about the basics of tire safety. We are also proud to provide great jobs in the community.”

The tire retailer started 54 years ago in Ann Arbor, Mich., when founder Bruce T. Halle had six tires, a portable air tank and a lot of determination.

Day-by-day, tire-by-tire, this one-man operation slowly grew into what is now one of the most recognized names in the industry. Today, Discount Tire operates more than 875 stores in 28 states.

Discount Tire sells a wide selection of leading tire brands such as Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Yokohama, Kumho, BFGoodrich, Pirelli, Falken and GT Radial along with Discount Tire exclusive brands such as Arizonian, Road Hugger, Pathfinder and MB Wheels.
