McCarthy Tire Service Climbs Toward Top of MTD’s 2020 List of 100 Largest Independent US Tire Dealers; Corporate Leader Quoted on Shifting Customer Needs During Pandemic

John McCarthy, Jr.

McCarthy Tire Service ranked number 21 out of more than 29,000 independent tire dealers this year, nudging out some competitors after acquiring 13 GCR Tires & Service locations from Bridgestone Americas, Inc.

Readers of the article, “Hanging Tough: Tire Dealers Look to Second Half of 2020 with ‘Cautious Optimism’” (July 2020), may appreciate just how difficult it is to achieve that ranking in a disrupted environment. McCarthy President John McCarthy is quoted in the article. While he acknowledges the closure of some customers’ and competitors’ businesses, he notes an uptick in the services used by consumers and businesses alike during implementation of COVID-19 restrictions: home delivery services, grocery trucks, bottled water companies, and medical supply transport, among others. His leadership through uncertainty, responsive employees, and business acquisitions kept our position strong as we move into 2021.

A family-owned business, McCarthy Tire Service has nearly 1,200 associates in more than 50 service locations, distribution centers, and manufacturing plants along the east coast. The company’s headquarters are located in its hometown of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania – less than two miles from where Joe McCarthy first opened his doors more than 90 years ago.
