July 13, 2022—Harding Tire Co. in Worcester, Massachusetts, has closed after 95 years in business.

According to This Week in Worcester, the shop opened in 1928. David Levy took over the business from his brother-in-law in 1952. Levy purchased the building that houses Harding Tire Co. in 1963.

Deborah Feingold and Anne Mack took over the business after their father, Levy, died in 2009. 

For almost 100 years, Harding served generations of families through tire sales, mounting tires, battery replacements,  brake repairs, alignments, and more. 

Feingold and Mack believe that now is the best time to close the doors. They are selling the building, and the remnants of Harding Tire Co. were cleared out on Monday, July 11. 

“It was a different era way back when, even before I came on. There were all locally owned tire places, family-owned. The tire business was different. People needed tires more often. So you saw customers regularly. Now when we sell a tire, we may not see our customers for three years unless there’s a problem or they get a new car,” Feingold said in the article.
