SPOKANE, Wash. (Nov. 19, 2015) — Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations has broken ground on a Speedco commercial service location near Spokane, its first Speedco outlet in Washington and second in the Pacific Northwest.
Bridgestone said opening this store is the “start of a new chapter of growth for the company,” but declined to elaborate at this time on details of its expansion strategy.
The new store, on I-90 at exit 272 a few miles southwest of Spokane, is expected to be completed by next summer, Bridgestone said. The store will have two tire bays and two lube bays, Bridgestone said, with more than a dozen employees.
The company declined to quantify the investment.
The new store — the first new Speedco location since 2010 — will be the 52nd Speedco outlet nationwide. Speedco locations offer lube and filter and tire services in a quick lane-style approach.
