CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio --- It's been nearly a month since much of the country has been shut down. And it's been nearly a month that tire and automotive repair businesses have been deemed "essential" by most government agencies.
So how has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the tire and automotive service industries?
How are some of the dealerships around the country dealing with the situation, particularly in New York state, where more than 10,000 people have died from the virus?
What steps have tire dealers taken to cope with the pandemic?
Join Tire Business Editor Don Detore, Managing Editor David Manley and Reporter Kathy McCarron for a livestream event, to be held Wednesday, April 15 at 3 p.m. EST.
They will talk about some of the latest industry news, then be joined by a panel of dealers representing several regions of the country.
The dealer panel includes:
- Patrice Banks of Girls Auto Clinic in Philadelphia;
- Eric Gill of Point S Gills Tire & Auto Service in Oregon;
- Darren McLea of McLea's Tire & Automotive Centers in Santa Rosa, Calif.; and
- Bill and Kevin Gorman of Barnwell House of Tires, with locations around New York City.
