Denham Springs tire, auto repair center sold to B.R. company
Baton Rouge-based Skid Marks Tires & Auto Service has purchased Firestone of Denham Springs, located at 1800 S. Range Ave., for an undisclosed sum, says Skid Marks owner Miles Holley. The tire and auto repair center will be rebranded under the new ownership on May 1, Holley says. The deal closed on Thursday. "The three partner owners there were looking to get out of the retail business to focus more on wholesaling, and it fits our business model extremely well," Holley says. Two Skid Marks stores in Baton Rouge and a third in Gonzales were Treads & Care stores for more than 30 years prior to being rebranded earlier this year. Holley says he aims to open other stores in the Capital Region in the coming years. —Steve Sanoski
