NEWPORT, R.I. (June 20, 2012) — Sullivan Tire & Auto Service has opened a retail store in Newport, its second in Rhode Island and 57th overall throughout New England.
Sullivan marked the store's grand opening June 23 with free food and prizes and guest appearances by two Pawtucket Red Sox players and Misty, Sullivan Tire's Saint Bernard mascot.
The 8,000-sq.-ft. location was acquired recently and converted to a Sullivan Tire outlet with 12 service bays. It sits on land near downtown Newport.
The store, Sullivan's second opening this year, is the southernmost in Sullivan's footprint, which stretches across four states as far north as Bangor, Maine.
“We are always looking to expand our business into new areas, and we are very excited about serving the Newport community,” said Paul Sullivan, vice president of marketing for Sullivan Tire & Auto Service.
