(PRWEB) July 13, 2010
JAXQuickfit Tyres has continued its Victorian expansion program with the opening of a new store on Mt Alexander Road, Essendon.
The Essendon store becomes the latest to join the tyre retailer and takes the total number of JAXQuickfit tyre stores in Victoria to 12, with more planned according to dynamic CEO Jeff Board.
"Our business originated in New South Wales just over 60 years ago and together with Queensland, that's been our strongest market presence.
"But two years ago we made a commitment to growing the business in Victoria and have expanded the network to provide more convenience to our customers, with more to come.
"And I am pleased to say we have quickly built a loyal and most importantly happy customer base, and our practices as a business which are reflected in our customer service, have been very well received."
Jeff Board was particularly pleased to be opening a new store to service the busy Essendon area and surrounds.
Utilising the latest tyre fitment technology, JAXQuickfit Tyres Essendon is in the business of tyres, wheels, brakes and suspension along with the associated services of wheel alignments, balancing, repairs and nitrogen inflation.
Experienced store manager and Essendon local Anthony Turville will look after the day to day running of the store, along with a team of highly qualified staff.
Anthony brings over 25 years automotive experience to the role, including extensive stints as store manager in several Victorian tyre retail stores and as regional manager for a major tyre retailer in Victoria and Western Australia.
The user-friendly Essendon store has been fully refurbished and renovated.
The waiting area is comfortable and clean, and has been designed specifically to make all customers welcome, acknowledging the high proportion of females who buy their own tyres.
"Our customer base is truly representative of the Australia population; gone are the days when females asked a male relative or friend to handle the tyre purchase decision," Jeff Board confirmed.
"The Essendon store has been designed to serve everyone efficiently and to make them feel comfortable and confident."
Australian-owned JAXQuickfit Tyres is unique in representing the top five global manufacturing giants of the tyre industry, including quality and high performance passenger car, four-wheel-drive and commercial vehicle tyre brands … BF Goodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Dunlop, Goodyear, Michelin and Pirelli together with value for money brand options.
This enables it to offer customers a mix of brands that span the premium, major and budget market sectors.
In 2009 JAXQuickfit celebrated its 60th year in business. Nationally, the network serves more than 42,000 customers per month through its approaching 80 stores along the eastern seaboard.
JAXQuickfit Tyres’ Essendon store will operate from 8am-5pm Monday to Friday and 8am-1pm on Saturdays and is located at 1009 Mt Alexander Road, Essendon.
