McCarthy Tire Sells Its Retail Center in Scranton, Pennsylvania

Effective immediately, McCarthy Tire Service has sold its store in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Jack Williams Tire and Auto Service Centers. The location was a dedicated tire and automotive center.

The McCarthy family did not come to this decision lightly. It was the result of thoughtful analysis and reflection given the challenges of the current economic environment.

“Since we are predominantly a commercial tire dealer, we find that in certain markets, standalone retail stores do not fit into our business model,” notes John D. McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service. “In situations such as this, the decision is a difficult one. Service to our customers and our teammates’ wellbeing are our primary goals. Jack Williams Tire and Service is a family-owned company, as we are, and we share similar values. With this transaction, we can rest assured that our customers and teammates will receive the highest quality care and service.”

The McCarthy family continues to pursue the company’s overall growth strategy. They are fully committed to ensuring that McCarthy Tire remains a strong, viable company and a leader in our market areas.
