Tire Discounters To Move HQ To Downtown Cincinnati
- May 21, 2015
Tire Discounters is joining the ranks of firms relocating their headquarters to downtown Cincinnati. The move is expected to take place this summer. It is part of the retailer’s accelerated growth strategy.
One of the nation’s largest independent tire retailers, Tire Discounters is based in Sharonville, but has outgrown its current campus. Moving to downtown Cincinnati will not only help Tire Discounters continue its growth plan, but will also allow the company to remain in the same region where it first started 39 years ago., according to Chip Wood, the company’s founder & chairman.
“We looked at several locations in multiple cities, but in the end this location was the best for us and our employees,” Wood said in a statement.
The retailer’s new headquarters will be located at One East 4th Street. Tire Discounters will occupy an entire floor in the 260,000-square-foot building. At least 40 employees will work at the new location to begin with. The company’s primary warehouse, various operations, growing training facilities, and many workers will remain in Sharonville.
“This is a very important and exciting move for Tire Discounters as we quickly expand our business,” added Paul Brunner, the company’s president & CEO. “We’re opening new stores, expanding the markets we’re in, adding a distribution center and now moving our corporate headquarters to downtown Cincinnati so we have more space.”
