Auto News: Discount Tire opens on Perryville in Machesney Park
Discount Tire, America’s largest tire and wheel retailer, has announced the opening of its new store at 7101 N. Perryville Road, Machesney Park, Ill.
The Discount Tire facility is on North Perryville Road, north of Illinois Route 173. The Machesney Park store is operated by eight employees and is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday. The store is closed on Sunday.
“Customers will likely be attracted by our low prices and selection of tires and wheels,” said Jose Contreras, store manager of the new Discount Tire in Machesney Park. “However, we believe that our customer service and satisfaction guarantee make the difference.”
Contreras has been with the company for nine years. Discount Tire is committed to promoting from within and is always looking for qualified individuals to join them in their exceptional growth. Additional career opportunities can be found by visiting Discount Tire’s website or a local Discount Tire store.
The Machesney Park store is equipped with the latest tools, including automatic inflation equipment that protects employees and was specially designed for Discount Tire. The no-touch mounting machines shield expensive wheels from damage and inflate tires to the precise air pressure.
Discount Tire offers the largest tire and custom wheel selection of any tire retailer. The company sells leading brands such as Goodyear, Michelin, Bridgestone, Yokohama, Kumho, BFGoodrich, Pirelli, Hankook, Falken, along with Discount Tire exclusive brands such as Silver Edition and Roadhugger.
