WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — McCarthy Tire Service made two moves recently in Pennsylvania to expand coverage and improve service to its commercial customers in the eastern part of its home state.
Wilkes-Barre-based McCarthy Tire has acquired the commercial business of Sandone Tire of Scranton, Pa., and has relocated its operations in Reading, Pa., to a larger facility less than two miles away.
The moves will expand McCarthy Tire's coverage in northeastern and central Pennsylvania, according to McCarthy Tire President John D. McCarthy Jr.
Financial details were not disclosed.
McCarthy Tire intends to merge Sandone Tire's truck tire sales and service activity with its existing commercial store in Dickson City, Pa., a community of about 6,000 just north of Scranton. The move affects eight Sandone Tire employees.
The deal does not affect Sandone Tire's retail or wholesale activities.
