“One of the things we hear from small business owners is that they’re worn out. They’re tired, and, quite frankly, that [the pandemic] was a very difficult time in their business history,” says Jamie Ward, president and CEO of Tire Discounters, in the latest episode of What’s Treading with Tire Review. “We’re able to give some small business owners the freedom to move on….and give them a plan for their employees and customers.”
