Scottsdale, Ariz.—Discount Tire, the world’s largest independent retailer of tires and wheels, has expanded its service offerings to include windshield wiper replacement.
The addition of windshield wiper blades, which the company will sell from $15 to $23 and install for free at each of its 1,090 locations across 36 states, is the latest initiative by the retailer to modernize a customer experience designed to be easy, inviting and efficient.
“Discount Tire is looking for new opportunities to offer services that take care of our customers and help keep them driving safe,” said Marcus Bolland, assistant vice president of Discount Tire.
“Customers tell us they appreciate the opportunity to complete an often overlooked safety check and parts replacement at the same time their tire or wheel service is performed. Replacing worn-out windshield wipers at our stores is a natural extension of our trusted expertise and quality service.”
Discount Tire technicians can help customers determine the right windshield wiper blades for their vehicle, and the stores are stocking wiper blades to fit more than 98 percent of cars and light trucks. Wiper blades available at Discount Tire locations are products exclusively from TRICO.
Customers pay for the cost of the wiper blades, with no labor charges for installation.
Discount Tire’s end-to-end customer experience lets drivers shop and book appointments online to reduce wait time in stores, and customers can remain in their vehicle while tire and wheel – and now wiper blade – service is performed.
Customers may also buy windshield wiper blades at Discount Tire and perform installation themselves.
