Express Tire & Wheel held their ribbon cutting event this morning, and they will be celebrating their grand opening today until 1 o’clock. Rita Qualls, owner, and Terri Nichole, co-owner, told us that they brought in a large amount of extra wheels for the event today and they also have hotdogs, hamburgers, drinks, a giveaway, and a bounce house. Qualls says that she hopes that the newly “women-owned” tire shop will support the mentality that women can be successful business owners. She hopes to host more events at Express Tire & Wheel and bring as much business to Hope as she can. Express Tire & Wheel offers an abundant selection of tires from trailer tires & trailer trim combos, ATV rims and tires, lawn mower tires, mud tires, highway tires, and street tires. They also offer front end work on almost all vehicles. Express Tire & Wheel is proud to be able to offer financing that does not require a credit check. “We are so pleased to be apart of the Hope community and we are HOPE-ing that we will become the number one tire shop in Hempstead County!” said Qualls. Business hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Stop by today until 1 o’clock and welcome them to the community while enjoying a hamburger/hotdog and a cool drink!
