After officially entering Illinois last year, Belle Tire opened its fifth Chicago-area shop last week in Aurora. It will be followed by Mokena later in March and St. Charles in April. And, the company plans to open locations in West Chicago, Romeoville and Orland Park by the end of summer, with Yorkville and Montgomery shops following after.
Management expects Belle Tire to open 60 Illinois locations over the next three years. The company currently has more than 130 locations across Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.
