ALLEN PARK, Mich. (Dec. 4, 2013) — Belle Tire Distributors Inc. opened retail stores in Lapeer and Grand Blanc, Mich., in recent weeks and is preparing to open another in Fort Gratiot, Mich., before year-end or early in 2014.
The Lapeer and Grand Blanc stores are Belle's fifth and sixth in the Flint, Mich., metro area, and bring Belle's retail store network to 88 locations—84 in Michigan and four in Ohio.
Both stores are 10,000-sq.-ft. facilities housing 10 service bays, including two full alignment pits, and a mezzanine warehouse built to hold more than 3,000 tires, according to Belle.
The Grand Blanc location is led by manager Andy Tamm, a Belle Tire veteran who most recently was the assistant manager of Belle's Lake Orion location. He oversees a team of 19 at that location.
