Master Tire & Auto Center, 1801 Gervais Street: February 2011   2 comments

Posted at 10:54 pm in business

I've noticed this car care operation on the corner of Gervais and Barnwell Streets a number of times over the years, though I never stopped in. In particular I believe I used to drive by on my way to the dentist, and other times I would just wonder at the way businesses sometimes cluster, as Master was catty-cornered to an almost identical Firestone operation and just a few blocks from a Goodyear.

I really like the Jasper Transmissions plaque -- It has that late 50s, early 60s design esthetic that is really nicer than what you generally see now.

    *Yah Ted, that sign is pretty cool. There are a lot of similar tire and auto stores in the immediate vicinity with the firestone across the street and then a few blocks down the Goodyear so I can't say I'm surprised at this closing. I'm guessing too the next owner will have to knock it down and rebuild.
