The new home of Alan Brown Tire officially opened doors on Monday, Nov. 25, after just under a year of construction. The local Les Schwab franchise is now housed in a 13,200-square-foot building designed by local architects Dustin Capri and Dietmar Goebel. The general contractor on the project was Quality Concrete Construction, of Newport.
This location previously housed Thompson’s Sanitary Service before that company built a new facility in north Newport. The site is 57,000 square feet — essentially an entire city block — located just east of Grove Veterinary Clinic and across from Newport Rental.
Those looking for a safety check, new winter tires, repairs and more can now find the Alan Brown signature service at 550 E Olive St. in Newport.
