JUNO BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 24, 2004) — Tire Kingdom Inc. will open three National Tire & Battery (NTB) stores in the Houston area next month, bringing its store count to 605.
The NTB outlets will be in Humble, Houston and Kemah, Tire Kingdom said. They should open their doors around Dec. 20 and will sport the logo: “NTB, a Tire Kingdom Company.” Tire Kingdom is a subsidiary of TBC Corp. The new construction stores are 8,400 square feet with 10 bays.
“Market demographics closely mirror that of the typical NTB customer,” said Bill Ihnken, president of retail for Tire Kingdom. “This fact along with our current strong retail brand recognition creates an environment conducive to the expansion of our NTB format within the greater Houston area.”
