MOUNTAIN TOP, Pa. (June 11, 2014) — Jack Williams Tire Co. recently held a grand opening for its 29th outlet, a modern-design tire and automotive service shop located in Mountain Top.
The dealership said the new store, located on South Mountain Boulevard, features amenities such as a spacious, kid-friendly waiting area, free Wi-Fi, an Internet bar and free shuttle service. In addition, it houses state-of-the-art equipment from Hunter Engineering Co., including Road Force wheel balancers, tire changers and alignment machines.
The location stocks a complete inventory of name brand tires and custom wheels, according to the company, and is set up to perform a variety of automotive maintenance and repair work, including brakes, wheel alignments, oil changes and state inspections.
“We’ve had Mountain Top in our plans for several years now, so we’re happy the day has finally arrived,” said Bill Williams, Jack Williams chairman and CEO.
To mark the opening of the Mountain Top outlet, Jack Williams made a $500 donation to Mary Grace Eckert, a 6th grader at St. Jude School in Mountain Top who for two years has been dedicating time and effort to support the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors charity.
Mountain Top resident and 37-year company veteran John McGroarty will join 14 technicians and associates at the new location, the company said. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
