PELHAM – National automotive repair chain Tuffy Tire & Auto Service has announced the grand opening celebration of the Pelham Tuffy store located at 3422 Pelham Parkway on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m.

Tuffy will offer complete automotive service on all vehicle makes and models both foreign and domestic. New local store owner and operator William King, a University of Alabama graduate, originally from Eufaula is excited to bring his passion for cars and customer service together at his new store.

“This is a dream come true for me, I’ve been doing a lot of research and looking for the opportunity to do something I love involving my passion for cars,” King said. “The key to any small business is ensuring customers are completely satisfied. As I explored the Tuffy franchise and visited several shops, I have seen firsthand how Tuffy truly values their customers and building relationships with them, which is why I am so confident and excited in my decision to become a franchise owner.”

King has been busy getting his new store and staff ready for his grand opening to greet customers and ensure they get the best service and value for their vehicles. He believes Pelham and the community will benefit greatly from having an auto repair center that works hard to get the job done right.

To welcome new customers and show his appreciation for their business, King will be offering an introductory $14.95 full-service oil change to all new customers.

“We’ll even top off your fluids, rotate your tires and provide a 19-point safety inspection while you’re here,” King added.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have someone like William open our newest location in Pelham,” Roger Hill, President and CEO of T.A.C., said. “William’s automotive expertise, strong business ethic and passion for cars will serve him well. Those are the ingredients we see in our most successful stores across the country and genuine involvement in the local community is critical.”

King also plans to provide a military, police and fire discount to support those who serve the local community.
