Discount Tires - Our Tradition, Your Savings
Mavis Discount Tire has been saving people time and money for more than 50 years! While the company was founded as Mavis Tire Supply Corporation in 1972, its roots can be traced back to 1949.
It all started with Vic's Cycle Shop, which repaired bicycles sold by its neighbor, a toy shop. In no time at all, the tiny shop developed a great reputation for performing seemingly impossible bicycle repairs. It quickly grew into a better equipped, better capitalized business. Its reputation of Value Oriented Service spread far and wide.
One day, a customer requested that the bicycle shop repair a flat tire on his car! Using bicycle tire repair tools, Victor was able to repair the tire and, before long, the neighborhood’s bicycle wizard found himself in the automobile tire business. In 1965 Victor and his wife, Marion changed the shop’s name to 'Vic the Tire King'. With their new name and focus, the owners became pioneers in the vastly expanding automotive era. On any given day in the early 1960’s, a rainbow of cars would be in line, waiting to be jacked up on the street to have their tires changed.
By 1968, business was booming. It was time for the next step. With limited resources and no market analysis, the owners built a 7,000 square foot tire center on the other side of town.
In no time the new state-of-the-art facility was a success. By 1971 they had three stores. In 1972, striving for a more professional image, the operating name was changed to Mavis Tire Supply, one of the first multi-brand tire dealers in the New York area. (Incidentally, ‘Mavis’ is derived from the first two letters of Marion’s and Victor's names, and the first letter of their last name.)
In 1988, management of the family-owned business was passed on to the next generation. Throughout the nineties, Mavis continued to grow, keeping pace with changing market demands and conditions.
Today, more than 140 modern, fully equipped Mavis service centers are spread all over New York State; and even in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
Our primary growth comes from selling discount tires to a great number of satisfied customers. Because we sell so many tires, Mavis can buy them at better prices and pass those savings on to you.
By the way, Mavis still operates that original 7,000 square foot store in Mt. Vernon. What’s more, our heritage of Value Oriented Service – originating with Vic’s Cycle Shop – remains the backbone of the company, and always will.
Mavis Discount Tire looks forward to helping you save on your next new set of discount tires. Thank you for your business!
