HIGH RIDGE, Mo. — Dobbs Tire & Auto Centers Inc. has opened its 41st store, in Eureka, Mo., and broken ground on its 42nd store, in Edwardsville, Ill., that the High Ridge-based dealership expects to open in March 2021.
The two events coincide with the dealership's 44th anniversary.
The 1,2000-sq.-ft. store in Eureka — a community of 10,000-plus residents located 20 minutes west of St. Louis on Interstate 44 — is a converted commercial property that features nine service bays and opens with 13 employees, Dobbs said.
"It was an easy decision for us to open in Eureka, as it is a thriving community in which more and more people are choosing to live and work," Dobbs Tire President David Dobbs said.
The dealership started work on the store conversion in January and held a ribbon-cutting Aug. 18.
