“Mini-Flynn’s” Location Opens In Ohio

Flynns-Tire-NilesFlynn’s Tire & Auto Service opened its 19th retail location in Niles, Ohio, on July 14. The five-bay location shares a customer waiting area with the adjacent Advanced Auto Parts store within the same building.

“This is a new concept for Flynn’s. Speed and efficiency within a reduced footprint is our goal. We are already staffed with experienced technicians and our tire inventory is supplied several times a day by the nearby Flynn’s Wholesale location. The reduced overhead will give us an opportunity to maximize profits while still providing exceptional customer service,” said Ian Snyder, store manager.

“This ‘Mini-Flynn’s’ gives us the opportunity to increase our market share by using a smaller store model,” added Joe Flynn III, company president. “The opening of this store coincides with the opening of the very first Flynn’s store fifty years ago that my grandfather, father and uncle opened in 1964.”
