Naperville welcomes Belle Tire’s expansion into Chicagoland


Recently the Naperville City Council and local Veterans were well represented when Belle Tire, one of the fastest growing tire and service retailers in America, opened its first location in Naperville. The almost 100-year-old company is making its entrance into the Chicagoland area by opening its locations in Naperville and Villa Park, also marking Belle Tire’s expansion in Illinois.

Belle Tire’s grand opening event at 1126 E Ogden Avenue in Naperville included a flag-raising ceremony conducted by members of the VFW, with comments to commemorate the milestone from Councilwoman Patty Gustin and Belle Tire President, Don Barnes III. Councilman Benny White and Councilman Paul Leong also attended to help welcome the company to Naperville.

Belle Tire already has established a long-term partnership with the Chicago Blackhawks as “Helmet Partner.” The retailer plans to open 60 Illinois stores over the next three years and anticipates this expansion will develop 1,000 jobs and make an economic impact of $325 million in the region. Belle Tire is hosting weekly hiring events in the area and offering signing bonuses.
