As a girly girl, one of my least favorite things to do is take our van to get serviced. I hate the smell, the atmosphere and the decisions involved in buying tires or getting the oil changed. Not to mention if we need something bigger like new brakes. When Tire Discounters invited Family Friendly Cincinnati to tour their newest facility that was designed with their women customers in mind, I was intrigued. Sixty-percent of their customers are women, so after completing a two-year journey of understanding what features are important to us, Tire Discounters started designing and building their prototype store in Colerain Township.
As soon as I walked in the door, I noticed how open, clean and uncluttered the store is. There were no racks of tires on the floor. All of the tires and wheels are on the wall mounted on specially designed racks that turn so the Associate can discuss tire options with the customer. Some of the other improvements include:
- Energy efficient glass used in the nearly all glass front store to reduce heat.
- Recycled rubber materials in flooring and landscaping
- LED lighting and reflective roofing
- Digital in-store presentations on the nice flat screen tvs will keep you up to date as to where your car is in line
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Refreshment bar (I enjoyed several Ferrerro Rocher candies during my short wait)
- Variety of television programming
- Child’s play area and family restrooms with diaper changing stations
Eventually, Tire Discounters would like to remodel all of their stores to incorporate as much of the new design as possible.
