Monro, an automotive undercar repair and tyre services in the United States, reports that it has expanded its collaboration with Amazon to provide tyre fitting services at over 330 additional Monro retail tyre and automotive service locations in 10 states across the Eastern United States with plans for further expansion.
Originally launched in just the greater Baltimore area, the tyre fitting services are now available to customers who purchase tyres 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 that it plans to make the service available to Amazon.com customers at more than 1,170 retail locations across 28 states.
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.
