GREENVILLE, Ohio — On a dark highway crossing the Indiana and Ohio border a few years back, Bill Stock had an epiphany.
He was traveling back to his Ohio home after another long day in his 19-year career as a copier and computer repairman. And the job was stressing him to the point of physical pain.
He put both hands on the steering wheel.
"Lord, if there's a job out there for me, please reveal it," he prayed.
God answered, "Sell tires."
And that's exactly what he did, opening Stock's Affordable Tires in Greenville in 2018.
In the two years since, his family has faced multiple tragedies.
Mr. Stock almost closed the shop for good.
And there was the coronavirus pandemic, too.
"But here we are," Mr. Stock said recently in his shop.
