CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — As much of the country begins to open up in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, tire and auto service dealers continue to serve customers, albeit in a much different world.
How are dealers faring across the county? What is life like — and business — on the East and West Coasts, two areas hit hardest by the pandemic?
What steps have tire dealers taken to cope with the situation moving forward? How is the supply? Customer interaction?
Tire Business Editor Don Detore and Managing Editor David Manley hosted a live roundtable discussion on May 27 to talk about some of the latest industry news with a distinguished panel of dealers representing several regions of the country.
The dealer panel includes:
Mike Holmes, Co-CEO, Virginia Tire & Auto, Fairfax, Va.;
