Discount Tire moves into nearby space

Discount Tire recently completed its move to 750 Lakeway Drive, in the former Hollywood Video space at the Lakeway Fred Meyer retail center. The tire store had been nearby at the Fred Meyer gas station.

The move allows Fred Meyer to expand its gas station. Plans include demolishing the former Discount Tire building to put in six additional fueling islands. The company also plans to make some changes to the entrance area from Lakeway to improve traffic flow. Once construction begins, work is expected to take about 10 weeks to complete, according to the original announcement from Fred Meyer.

Hours of operation for the new Discount Tire store are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday. In a news release, the company said the store is also in the process of hiring more employees. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Friday, July 31 and Saturday, Aug. 1.
