Dapper Tire Co. opened its ninth warehouse, a 15,000-sq.-ft. facility, July 1 in Portland, Ore.
The warehouse will supply about 300 dealers in the Portland, Salem, Eugene and Vancouver, Ore., areas. The company primarily distributes Goodyear, Dunlop and Republic brands, said Randy Higham, a Dapper Tire salesman.
``People haven't been able to get their Goodyear and Dunlop product up here for years, and that's why we're here,'' Mr. Higham said.
San Diego-based Dapper Tire operates along the West Coast and has been in business for 55 years.
