Monro Inc. has expanded its tire-installation collaboration with Amazon to more than 400 additional retail tire and automotive service shops across nine central and western states. The move more than doubles the number of shops in the program.
Initially launched in the Baltimore area, tire installation is now available at Monro-owned shops in 21 states, which works out to roughly two-thirds of the company’s locations. The program is available to customers who purchase tires from Amazon and select the ship-to-store option.
Monro President and CEO Brett Ponton said the rollout of the Amazon collaboration has been progressing smoothly. “Additionally, we have achieved an average 4.6-star rating at the locations where these services are available, underscoring the progress we’ve made in delivering a consistent best-in-class experience to our customers,” Ponton stated. “Building a true omni-channel presence remains a key initiative of our ‘Monro Forward’ strategy, and we look forward to continuing to expand this collaboration.”
