PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Customers entering NTB Tire & Service Centers and Tire Kingdom stores across the U.S. will be required to wear face masks starting July 23, according to parent company TBC Corp.
TBC Corp. said the change is an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
TBC has more than 410 NTB locations nationwide and more than 190 Tire Kingdom stores throughout Florida.
"While we have required team members in our company-owned locations to wear face masks and gloves for many months now, we are now calling upon our customers to join us in the fight against coronavirus when visiting our locations. Effective July 23, 2020, all customers entering a NTB or Tire Kingdom location will be required to wear a face covering," Brian Maciak, executive vice president, general counsel and chief compliance officer for TBC, said.
TBC said customers must enter the location wearing a mask. The company will update customers on the new protocol via social media, website, signage at locations and via customer service channels.
