If you head North out of Mansfield on Highway 71, you’ll notice a banner located on the property between East Willis Street, and the abandoned Walmart building.
The sign marks the spot for Cherokee Tires which is currently offering tire sales at 1021 Hwy 71 South on the bypass across from the Ranger station in Waldron.
Cherokee Tires will offer new, and used tire sales, wheel alignment, and drive-thru oil changes at the Mansfield location. Construction should start within the next few weeks and will take approximately six weeks to complete.
“We recognized a need in our area to have a full tire shop that will be able to service passenger cars all the way up to commercial heavy duty trucks like log trucks, dump truck’s and 18-wheelers” said Cherokee Tires owner, Shawn Silvey.
Noting a recognizable face, Ben Garlin will be running the tire aspect of the business.
