WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. — Telle Tire & Auto Centers opened its 20th retail store in a former Subaru dealership in Webster Groves that also will serve as its new headquarters.
The 14,000-sq.-ft. location was completely renovated and opened June 14.
The corporate offices fill a 4,000-sq.-ft. space that has been redesigned with an open concept that incorporates working spaces and multiple sitting areas to encourage collaboration and team building, the dealership said.
In addition to day-to-day administration operations, Telle Tire said it also will use the space to welcome associates outside of the store environment into a relaxed setting to establish new connections, share best practices and enhance collaboration.
Telle Tire had been headquartered in the original store location from the 1940s when the company had only seven associates and was open to the store's waiting room.
"We made it work for us, but we were truly busting at the seams and when this opportunity came along, it was the perfect solution for us to add another location and build out our corporate office space," President and CEO Aaron Telle said.
