Love's Open First Tire Care and Lube Center in El Paso, Texas

EL PASO, FEB. 14, 2011—Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores today announced it opened a tire care and lube center in El Paso, TX. It is the first of its kind for the company and will offer lube services, oil changes, sell tires and perform minor repairs.

The tire care and lube center is located at the Love’s Travel Stop on I-10 and Horizon Boulevard, which has been open since 1986. The new tire and lube facility has 15 employees and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The El Paso location will be one of many additions for Love’s. They plan to add 50 tire care shops in 2011. These are complements to current Love’s Travel Stops providing new tires and services such as tire balancing.

"Love’s is committed to providing the best possible facilities and services that matter to the driving public,” says Tom Love, chairman and CEO. “The El Paso tire care and lube center will be a great complement to our aggressive 2011 growth plan for the truck tire care shops.”
