PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tire Factory announced record comparable-store sales growth in 2010 according to CEO John Kreidel.
Comparable-store units were up over 20% and Member purchases were up over 15% in 2010. Comparable-store sales and units are of those stores who have been a member of Tire Factory for at least one year.
"Our tremendous sales growth in a slow economy is due to bringing more value to our Members who pass along the savings to their customers," said Mr. Kreidel. "Tire Factory owners keep re-investing in their stores, the Tire Factory Brand and their people to improve the customer experience and it is really paying off. Members have improved facilities this past year and focused their efforts on the most recognized tire brands in the world such as Goodyear, Dunlop and Nokian Tyres."
