GREEN BAY, Wis.—Pomp's Tire Service Inc. recently opened a new commercial tire center—its 45th outlet—in Osseo, Wis., near I-94.
The location is a different kind of venture for Pomp's because the dealership is leasing a truck stop's four bays to do minor truck repairs and tire service, according to Tom Strehl, who heads Pomp's retail sales and advertising.
The Osseo outlet operates two service trucks, he said, and by spring will employ eight and run 16-hour shifts.
Pomp's sells Kelly, Michelin, Bridgestone and Firestone brands, and offers Bandag retreads. In the past five years, the dealership has opened or acquired 13 outlets.
