Hennelly Tire & Auto Inc., which does business as Tire Choice & Total Car Care, recently opened its 26th and 27th locations, in New Port Richey and Palm Harbor, Fla.
Hennelly Tire acquired the New Port Richey outlet, which includes eight service bays, from Top Line Tire & Auto Centers Inc. It will fit in well with Hennelly Tire's six other stores in the Tampa, Fla., area, the company said.
The Palm Harbor store was a former Goodyear company store.
In early April, the retail dealership opened stores in Port St. Lucie and Tampa, Fla. The Port St. Lucie outlet was acquired while the company built the nine-bay Tampa outlet.
Hennelly Tire also expects to start construction on stores in Cape Coral and Venice, Fla., by year-end. The company said it is still on track to meet its goal of opening 35 locations by year-end 2010.
