MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The dream that first came into focus in late 2017 has become a 121,000 sq.-ft. reality for Point S Tire & Automotive Service USA.
The marketing group officially has christened a new warehouse in Memphis, initiating a key piece of the organization's stated goal of "555" plan: 500 locations in 50 states within the next five years.
The shiny new distribution center — a $2 million-plus investment that also will serve as a training center— actually opened Dec. 6, 2022. But a group of about 50 members attended a recent open house, in which Point S executives were able to show off the fruits of the labor.
Since the beginning of the year, Point S has added 28 locations, marking its best year yet for expansion with eight months to go. Of the 28, 15 are full retail members, one is a commercial member, and the rest are part of the associated program that was unveiled last year.
Point S is nearing 300 locations nationwide.
