New businesses continue to come to District 11. On January 24th, 2017, Council Member Danny Becton joined State Senator Aaron Bean, and fellow council members Matt Schellenberg and Tommy Hazouri along with JSO Zone 3 Commander Mat Nemeth for Tire Plus Store #772996 in its official ribbon cutting ceremony.
The new location is the 17th Tire Plus store in the Jacksonville area located at 12575 Bartram Park Blvd. It celebrated that achievement by presenting a $500 check to Darby Stubberfield, Director of Development for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida.
The design of this Tire Plus store is a modern one that blends with the Bartram environment whereby the store frontage faces the street with stone accent materials allowing for the work bays to be perpendicular facing away from the main road hiding the auto service process.
A little history on Tire Plus:
Tires Plus was launched in 1976 by two Shell Oil colleagues — Tom Gegax and Don Gullett — with three old Shell service stations in the Burnsville, Minnesota area. Their idea was to redefine an industry. Today, with headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, Tires Plus Total Car Care attributes its success to defying the old stereotypes of the automotive industry.
Walk into a Tire Plus store and you immediately notice the brightly lit, colorfully merchandised showroom. You’re greeted by a clean, well–dressed, well–trained service professional. With the philosophy "We won’t sell you tires, we help you buy them," you can be confident that tires and services will never be recommended if they are not needed. This straightforward, honest approach is the basis of Tires Plus success and has helped make them part of the largest tire retailing group in the country.
At Tires Plus Total Car Care, customer satisfaction is simply not good enough; guest enthusiasm must be our goal. We believe a customer who leaves satisfied will come back, but a guest who leaves enthused may tell everyone they know. That’s why Tires Plus not only requires that guests be treated courteously, but also guarantees the lowest price on every tire sold.
Tires Plus knows that sounds good, but our pursuit of guest enthusiasm demands much more. Guests’ vehicles are serviced in about an hour, which is barely enough time to take advantage of waiting room amenities, such as reading a magazine, watching TV, enjoying a cup of coffee or browsing our displays.
With over 5,000 employees in 500 stores across 23 states, Tires Plus Total Car Care is a company in the fast lane.
Our combination of an aggressive growth plan, a sensitive and caring business mission, and a community giving program — including recipients such as Meals on Wheels Association of America and Pediatric Cancer Foundation, as well other local organizations — and you get the entire picture of what Tires Plus is all about.
Tires Plus is truly, Like No Other Store.
