Monro Inc. announced today it has expanded its collaboration with Amazon.com to provide tire installation services at more than 330 additional Monro retail tire and automotive service locations in 10 states across the Eastern United States.
The partnership, first announced in July was pilot tested at 52 stores in the greater Baltimore area.
Brett Ponton, president and CEO, said, “We’re pleased with the results of the initial launch of our collaboration with Amazon.com, and are now expanding this option for tire installation to Amazon.com customers at a total of nearly 400 locations across the Eastern United States. Our preferred tire agreements with online retailers are a key initiative of our omni-channel strategy, and this expanded collaboration underscores the strong progress we have made as we continue to develop our online presence.”
The tire installation services are now available to customers who purchase tires from Amazon.com and select the Ship-to-Store option at nearly 400 locations operating under a number of Monro brands in Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Tennessee and Virginia. Over the course of the next year, Monro says it plans to make these services available to Amazon.com customers at more than 1,170 retail locations across 28 states.
