NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (April 15, 2010) — Monro Muffler Brake Inc. opened its 48th Tire Warehouse outlet, April 11, in North Adams, expanding the chain to 13 stores in Massachusetts.
The retail store is operating in what was a previously shuttered Tire Warehouse Central (TWC) location under the chain's previous owner. Monro said it felt the location was viable and decided to update and reopen the outlet.
Tire Warehouse has a tires-only sales format and offers a large selection of tire brands. Monro purchased the Keene, N.H.-based TWC chain last October for $34 million from retiring owner Robert Dabrowski, taking over the dealership's then 40 company-owned stores and a distribution center in Swanzy, N.H., and assuming the franchise agreements of six franchised locations.
Overall, Monro operates 788 locations in 19 states under the banners of Tire Warehouse, Mr. Tire, Monro, TreadQuarters and AutoTire.
