Mavis Discount Tire has opened a new store in Amherst in a former Sears Auto Center.
Mavis in the past few days opened its latest store in the Buffalo Niagara market in a retail building at 1435 Niagara Falls Blvd., just north of Maple Road and the Boulevard Mall.
The store opened in the late 1990s as a National Tire and Battery automotive store before closing in 1999. It later reopened as a Sears Auto Center before closing, along with the Sears anchor store in the Boulevard Mall, in spring 2017.
Empire Commercial Construction in Penfield on Friday completed the extensive interior and exterior renovations on the 11,000-square-foot building. This is the 12th Mavis location in Western New York. Mavis first entered this market in 2008 with its purchase of Cole Muffler Brake.
