The tires must go on!

Murray Les Schwab keeps its commitment to customers and the community rolling while it builds a new store at the familiar location on State Street

As far as Billy Wendling is concerned, less is definitely more, even when it comes to the size of the local Les Schwab Tire Center store he manages. The current facility is being demolished and rebuilt in a better, more streamlined configuration right in the same spot, and the store is open for business throughout construction.

“The current store size actually made it harder to work efficiently for our customers,” Wendling said. “The employees were too far away from each other — if you were working on a car in one of the bays, you were a long way from people at the front desk. We’ll be able to get customers back on the road more quickly and employ more crew members in the new space.”

Les Schwab sells only the highest quality products backed by its world-class service and warranties. The company’s Best Tire Value Promise gives customers peace of mind, because the workmanship is guaranteed for the life of the tires. Founder Les Schwab passed away in 2007, but his vision of doing the right thing for customers, communities and crews is still the foundation of the company’s culture. Employees are focused on more than the day’s transaction; they want to build customers for life.

Fostering a strong community giving program is Les Schwab’s way of repaying customer loyalty by reinvesting in their home towns. For the Murray store, this community support includes sponsorship of numerous teams at Murray High School, including football, baseball, softball, and boys and girls basketball. These contributions help the student athletes buy uniforms and equipment as well as pay for their travel and lodgings when they play in out-of-state-tournaments.

The store also supports the annual Wasatch Front National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Memorial Golf Tournament, which just took place on June 24. These tournaments help the foundation provide resources like scholarships for the families of firefighters who died in the line of duty. And during the holidays, in addition to helping to collect coats that will be distributed to people in need, the Murray store supports Shop With a Cop, an annual holiday tradition for law enforcement across the Salt Lake Valley in which officers volunteer to help children shop for gifts for themselves and their families.

Les Schwab opened in Murray in 2003, in an existing building the company bought. The more sophisticated new store design features green technology principles in lighting and ventilation and an expanded waiting area that includes a display space for highlighting community partnerships. Customers and employees both will enjoy greater access to daylight and views of the shop.

Look for news of the store’s grand opening January 2017, when there’ll be a celebration featuring giveaways, local food, savings and fun activities. In the meantime, you can still rely on the Murray store for tires, wheels or even a free pre-trip safety check — they’ll examine your tire air pressure and tread depth as well as brakes, shocks and battery — to keep your summer adventures on track.
