Warren Tire plans summer opening

O ne of the region’s largest automotive service providers is hoping to open a location in Whitehall later this year.

Bob Kellogg, president of Warren Tire Service Center, confirmed last week his company is in negotiations to purchase the former Skenesborough Gardens property at 189 Broadway, directly across the road from the CVS shopping plaza.

Kellogg said he is hoping to close on the sale next month and is planning an early summer opening.

“We’ve been interested in that area, the Route 4 corridor for some time,” said Kellogg who has been actively seeking a location in the area since the end of last year. “We have customers from Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Rutland, Poultney, Granville and Whitehall and we think by doing this we will be able to better serve their needs.”

The location would be a complete auto service center and like other branches, offer the company’s full line of tires.

Kellogg said the location may even include one of the company’s road service trucks for replacing tires on large trucks, such as tractor trailers and construction vehicles.

The shop would be the company’s third location in Washington County (there are others in Greenwich and Hudson Falls) and its 15th overall. It would also be the company’s northern-most location.

Kellogg said Warren Tire employs 110 people and the Whitehall location would have a staff of four. He said a manager has already been designated and the company will be looking to hire an additional three employees. He said he has already received an application from a Whitehall resident.

Once the sale has been completed, Kellogg said the building will be renovated and the shop would open shortly thereafter.
