AKRON—Goodyear opened Goodyear Auto Service retail stores in Dayton, Ohio, and Beckley, W.Va., in recent weeks, part of the company's ongoing review of its retail business strategy.
The Dayton store, the first Goodyear Auto Center in the southwest Ohio city, opened April 21 with representatives of the Dayton Chamber of Commerce on hand. The Beckley store opened March 31.
Goodyear said it chose Dayton and Beckley because it is always evaluating potential markets to enter and saw great potential in both communities.
"We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional customer experience with convenient automotive care and tire-buying services," said Fred Thomas, vice president and general manager of Goodyear Retail.
