Sales offices, a retail store and service bays will soon bring new jobs to Allen.
Discount Tire is preparing to move its regional offices from Plano to a two-acre site just west of US 75. The site is currently home to Harley Davidson, which plans to relocate within Allen.
The site will serve as an office and training center for Discount Tire’s regional vice presidents. A retail store and service bays will also operate on the site. Service bays will be screened by masonry walls; any cars left at the facility overnight must be parked inside the bays.
Since the site was not previously zoned for minor automotive repairs, the City of Allen required Discount Tire to apply for a special use permit. City council members approved the permit request during the Sept. 13 meeting.
