After 46 years, Sanders Tire located on Wellfords Wharf Road will be closing their doors on Thursday, May 31st.

Aubrey Sanders has decided it is time to retire and to do some traveling with his wife Linda.

Sanders Tire got started back in 1972 by his father, the late Talmadge Sanders who started out selling recaps. Then in 1976, Aubrey joined his father and built the shop and selling tires.

6-months ago Co-Owner Marion Sanders retired from the family business.

Aubrey said that this is the most difficult thing to do and our customers have been family to us. For three generations we’ve been a family-owned business and I want to thank our customers for all of their support.
