Tire Review Announces Winner of 2017 Top Shop Awards

“The Top Shop Awards bring out the best of our industry, giving us the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the owners and teams of some of the finest tire dealerships in North America,” said Patti Renner, editor of Tire Review. “This year the level of competition was truly incredible. All of the shops named – Alyeska Tire, Redwood General Tire Pros, Monroe Tire and Waukegan Tire – are all inspirational businesses and truly worthy of Top Shop honors. Their employees and communities should be very proud.”

Tire Review’s Top Shop contest evaluates dealers of all sizes, honoring independent tire dealers that best epitomize the key attributes and values of a highly successful tire business: customer service and retention, training and education, merchandising and promotion, professional standards and conduct, appearance, solid business management, community involvement, business growth, achievement and innovation.

The official Top Shop award ceremony and celebration will take place at the Tire Industry Honors event in Las Vegas on Oct. 30.
