I noticed recently that Frank's Discount Tire on Fairlane Drive is now Mavis Discount Tire. I don't have any experience with either business, but I have to say Frank's had the nicer sign. Of course I'm a sucker for neon.

  1. The China Dragon in that same complex is no longer there either. It's something else now...can't recall. Maybe Mexican?

  2. It was Saffron for a while: Indian/Chinese/Mexican (later just Indian), now I think it's something all Mexican.

  3. Frank's sold to Tire Engineers in late 2017. The name change was supposed to take affect in early 2018 and Frank's employees were already wearing Tire Engineers shirts. Then all of a sudden Tire Engineers merged with Mavis Discount Tire in February 2018. https://www.moderntiredealer.com/news/728630/mavis-and-express-oil-change-tire-engineers-are-merging

    All five location of Frank's were changed in the transition. Mavis also acquired the five store SC-based Hill Tire Center with locations in Moncks Corner, Georgetown, Walterboro, Summerville, and North Charleston. https://www.tirebusiness.com/article/20180521/NEWS/180529993/mavis-tire-acquires-11-stores-in-georgia-s-carolina

    I also heard somewhere that Tire Engineers had acquired Irmo Tire before the merger with Mavis, but I do not know that for sure.
