Les Schwab building tire center on Sedgwick

les-schwab-tireThe Port Orchard Les Schwab will move from Bay Street to Sedgwick Road early next spring.

Work has already begun on a 12,000-square-foot new tire center across from Fred Meyer.

Les Schwab Assistant Manager Jim Flinner said the Bay Street center had become outdated.

“The company saw our building was older,” he said. “It’s hard to take care of our customers here.”

The new center will be roomier and allow easier access for drivers. The building is being constructed on a 2.7-acre lot and will feature eight garage bays.

“It’s going to be a really nice facility,” Flinner said.

Les Schwab expects to move south to Sedgwick in mid-April. Flinner said no decisions have been made on what will happen with the 1216 Bay Street property, which Les Schwab owns.

“This town has so much to offer, and we’re confident even better and more prosperous days await Bay Street and the merchants and businesses there,” Ryan said in the release.

The new partners bring diverse experience to the market businesses.

MacEwen is a state representative for the 35th Legislative District and president of Falcon Financial, Inc. MacEwen is a partner in Smokin’ Mo’s barbecue in Shelton and Corner Coffee and Café in Bremerton.

Haydock is a Kitsap native and former executive director of the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce. Sego has spent decades in community development, public policy and small business development. Sego and Haydock are partners in an environmental restoration company.

According to the release, Cherry and Ryan will continue to be involved in his other Kitsap County ventures.
