AKRON — Goodyear is keeping its Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires retail stores open during the COVID-19 pandemic, but is reducing hours to allow individual stores to operate in multiple shifts and limit close personal contact among the store teams and with others.
The temporarily reduced store hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, with stores closing on Sundays. The new hours start March 25 and will be in effect for at least two weeks, Goodyear said.
These changes also will help to ensure stores can remain open to provide tires and auto care to customers who need them, Goodyear said, such as law enforcement, first responders and others in essential roles, such as doctors, nurses and grocers.
"Because of the services we provide, many of our guests … (who are) responsible for protecting public health and safety, rely on us for tire and auto service to keep their vehicles on the road," Fred Thomas, vice president, Goodyear Retail, said.
