New site offers drive-in customers easy access from PA Turnpike and I-95
WILKES-BARRE, PA, June 30, 2020 – McCarthy Tire Service has moved store operations and staff from its site in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, to a larger facility in Levittown, Pennsylvania, a community 20 miles northeast of Philadelphia. The move was effective on June 26, 2020.
“This new location is very convenient for our customers,” said John D. McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service. “It’s only two miles from the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-95.The property has easy access, large service bays, and a good-sized parking lot. We set up a nice waiting area with free Wi-Fi and plenty of hot coffee.”
McCarthy Tire acquired the former Gallagher Tire building in Levittown this winter and began renovations. Work was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 shut down, and it resumed in early May when the state restrictions on construction activity were lifted. Renovations were completed ahead of schedule, and team members from several stores pitched in to help transfer product and operations from Bensalem to the Levittown facility. The team is now working out of the new facility.
The new Levittown store handles tire sales and service for commercial trucks, buses, industrial equipment, off-the-road (OTR) vehicles, and farm tractors and implements; a mounted tire program; and fleet services. The roadside assistance program will cover the City of Philadelphia, southeastern Pennsylvania, and western New Jersey. Click hereto view the Levittown, Pennsylvania, location on Google Maps.
In a second phase, McCarthy Tire will move its industrial tire business in Philadelphia to the Levittown facility in July. McCarthy Tire acquired the Philadelphia site from the Dooling family in 2017. The operation specializes in industrial and off-the-road (OTR) tire sales and service for the Mid-Atlantic region, with a special expertise in foam filling and pressing.
Matthew McLernan, manager of the Philadelphia store, is the new location manager of the combined operation in Levittown. Sherry Beck, the assistant manager in Bensalem, has taken up the same post in the new facility.
The new address is 1901 Hartel Avenue, Levittown, Pennsylvania, 19057. The phone (267-522-8046) and fax numbers (267-522-8051) at the Bensalem store were ported over and remain the same.
