COVID-19 UPDATE 03/20/20: All Stores & Plants are OPEN, including Pennsylvania Locations

Last night, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses in the Commonwealth to shut down in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19. Tire businesses and repair shops are EXEMPT from this order.

  • ALL OF OUR STORES ARE OPEN AND IN FULL OPERATION, INCLUDING OUR PENNSYLVANIA LOCATIONS. Our teams are ready and standing by to service your vehicle or fleet quickly, professionally, and with all appropriate safeguards.
  • Roadside assistance for commercial trucks is available 24/7. Our road call technicians are practicing COVID-19 safety precautions. If you need a road call, contact the store nearest your breakdown.
  • Our 10 retread plants are in full operation and they are manufacturing units on schedule for our fleet customers. 
  • The leadership team has furloughed associates in non-essential areas so they can stay home to care for their families. This DOES NOT impact our service operations. However, accounts payable and accounts receivable are now functioning with a minimum staff.


  • We have implemented COVID-19 protocols in our stores, shops, trucks, retread plants, and with our customers’ vehicles so that all service work can be completed in a safe manner for both our associates and customers. This includes social distancing, use of gloves, and a thorough disinfecting protocol.
  • Every member of our staff has increased hand washing plus use of hand sanitizer. They are also cleaning the waiting area chairs, counter tops, keyboards, walls, tools, doors and doorknobs, and restrooms several times a day.

Thank you for your trust in McCarthy Tire Service. The health of our associates, customers, suppliers, and their families is our top priority.

Please do not lose heart. Together, we will persevere and overcome these challenges.

With warm personal regards,

John D. McCarthy Jr.
