The store opened its first location in Ann Arbor at 2270 W. Stadium Blvd. 51 years ago, according to a news release. It recently built a new 6,000-square-foot store at 5240 Jackson Road to relocate the original business.
“We’ve built many improvements into our new location and look forward to serving our store guests more efficiently and effectively,” said Tim Ehinger, vice president of the Michigan region, in the release.
The company won approval to build the store in May 2011, seven years after Discount Tire originally launched its plan to build a store in Scio Township.
The plan was originally presented to the Planning Commission in 2004, again in 2006, and yet again in 2010.
The relocation allowed the facility to double in size and quadruple its previous parking lot. The same 15 employees from the West Stadium location will operate the new store, according to the release.
There are 57 Discount Tire stores in Michigan, and more than 800 nationwide. There are five locations in Washtenaw County.
