Les Schwab Tire Center Coming Soon To Sidney

Early May of this year, locals noticed that ground had been broken on the land in front of the Candlewood Suites, Sidney, northeast of the Shops at Fox Run.

The land has been bought and sold more than once. The land had been owned by Jack Reynolds, the owner of Reynolds and Fox Run. During the most recent oil boom, he sold it to a gas station company which did not seem to do anything with it. Now, it is owned by Les Schwab Tire Center, and on which they plan to put their first tire center in eastern Montana.

Les Schwab Tire Center is a tire and maintenance shop that is based out of Bend, OR ,. It opened in 1952 with one little tire shop in Bend but has since spread to over 500 locations across 10 states. They do tires of all sizes from wheelbarrows and cars to tractor and construction equipment tires. They also do brakes, wheels, alignments, batteries, shocks, and struts. They have snow chains, and towing accessories, and have lowering, lifting, and leveling options, as well as on-the-farm service.

The center in Sidney is to offer tire sales, maintenance, brakes, alignments, and shocks and struts. Dale Thompson, Les Schwab Tire Centers CMO said, "All helping you to stay safe on the road." Les Schwab is hoping to have their new Sidney tire center completed and open by the end of 2023. This, of course, is dependent on weather and they may not be able to open until early 2024.

Les Schwab has several other stores in Montana in different cities and towns. The closest store to Sidney is the one in Sheridan, WY, and there is one that will open in Billings in June. Thompson said, "We started in the Pacific Northwest and expanded out. We have been successful in western Montana and Sidney seems like the kind of town we have been successful in."
