CHICAGO (Nov. 16, 2016) — TBC Corp. has opened an NTB Tire & Service Center location in Chicago — its first in the city and 35th in Illinois.
Equipped with seven service bays and state-of-the-art equipment, the new location — a former Just Tires store in Chicago's Belmont/Cragin neighborhood — offers a variety of tire and automotive care services.
“We're eager to continue serving customers in Illinois through our first location in Chicago,” said Markus Hockenson, senior vice president of Retail Operations for TBC.
The company did not disclose its investment in taking over or converting the location.
“Now, with 35 locations in the state, we're remaining true to our underlying mission to continue exceeding customer expectations while continuing to add locations where it makes the most sense for our business and our customer base from a convenience perspective.”
The opening gives TBC a dozen NTB locations in the greater Chicago metro area.
TBC has opened four other NTB locations in three states in recent weeks: in East Providence, R.I.; Arden Hills and Brooklyn Park, Minn.; and Johns Park, Ga. It also opened a Tire Kingdom store in Boca Raton, Fla.
