ROGERS -- A new tire store is coming to the city after the Planning Commission approved a development plan Tuesday.
Discount Tire plans to build an 8,192-square-foot building on 1.86 acres at 2401 W. Pleasant Grove Road in the highway commercial, condominium use zoning district.
Discount Tire opened in Ann Arbor, Mich., in 1960 and now has 1,000 stores across the United States. In California it's known as America's Tire.
