CLEVELAND (March 19, 2014) — Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center is adding two stores to its 10-outlet stable in the greater Cleveland area.
One of the new locations, in the eastern suburb of Wickliffe, Ohio, is the former Maher Brothers Auto Repair, owned by Darryl and Corey Maher, which became a Rad Air franchisee. Rad Air has nine franchisees in northern Ohio that operate under its signage.
The second location will be a company-owned store due to open by June in Cleveland. The location was a former Firestone tire store under a city parking deck. Both the parking deck and the eight-bay store are undergoing renovations, the company said.
Similar to the other Rad Air locations, the two new stores will offer full tire and automotive maintenance services ranging from oil changes and battery replacements to fleet management maintenance as well as transmission and engine projects.
“Having the two new locations in Cleveland and Wickliffe will be an excellent addition to our business,” said Tom Warmuth, vice president of operations.
“What we have learned is that our customers want to be able to get to the Rad Air location that is closest to their home or work because they have built a relationship with their car technician and manager.
“That is what makes Rad Air different. We prioritize building a relationship with each one of our clients.”
When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
