Tire Discounters, the country’s largest 100% family-owned and operated tire and service provider, has officially expanded its Atlanta metro area presence with another grand opening. The opening was commemorated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, January 15, at the new store located at 5585 Peachtree Blvd in Chamblee.
“We couldn’t have asked for a warmer welcome from the City of Chamblee,” said Charles Curlee, Vice President of Retail Sales, who also grew up in the Atlanta area. “This ribbon-cutting serves as a ceremonial start to our entry into Atlanta. The greater Atlanta area is a strategic market for us as we continue to expand our business. We are excited to introduce Tire Discounters family to this great city, and to provide the outstanding service here that our customers have come to know and trust.”
In addition to Curlee, representatives from Tire Discounters included General Manager Eric Neal, Area Operations Manager Steve Flesher, Director of Retail Operations Tripp Peak, Division Director Dave Chirello, and Manager Bobby Light. They were joined by City of Chamblee Councilmember Leslie Robson who came to officially welcome Tire Discounters to the area.
“We’re proud to welcome Tire Discounters to the City of Chamblee and look forward to the service they’ll provide to our residents and others in the metro Atlanta area. Their new location is a great addition to our community,” Robson said.
The Chamblee store offers tires, wheels, a full range of automotive services and Tire Discounters’ Skip the Shop —a no-charge valet pick-up and delivery service. Tire Discounters will come and pick up a customer’s vehicle from wherever they are, perform any tire or automotive service they desire, and deliver the vehicle back to the customer.
This opening is a major step in Tire Discounters’ goal of opening 30 stores in the Greater Atlanta area by the end of 2022. The company has acquired several businesses throughout Georgia and the Greater Atlanta area over the last two years, including Bulldog Tire, Porterfield Tire, and North Georgia Tire. An auto glass company, Lightning Auto Glass, located in Chamblee, was also added last year. These stores joined other locations across Georgia.
“Although our company has grown exponentially over the last few years, we have never lost sight of what sets us apart—and that’s our family-owned and operated values,” said Anna Wood, Managing Director and daughter of founder Chip Wood. “As a family-owned and operated business, we treat our customers like family,”. “It’s that simple. We look forward to extending this same courtesy to the residents of Chamblee and greater Atlanta.”
