Tires Plus / Roscoe's Small Engine Repair, 1100 Chesterfield Highway: 2022
Tires Plus on 1100 Chesterfield Highway was, for years, where my dad would take the cars to have their tires rotated or changed. I believe Tires Plus also worked on and may have sold lawn mowers. I vaguely recall what the original building looked like; I'm thinking the outside was painted blue? There was a small shop up front and a maintenance bay or two in the back. Except for the original building's foundation and the Michelin sign, everything went up in smoke after a fire in the 2000s.
For a while after the fire, Tires Plus operated at some capacity out of a trailer. Some time afterward, it began operating out of the tan and red-trimmed sheet metal building at the back of the property. Sadly, it appears that Tires Plus went out of business in 2018 when the owner, Ricky Griggs, passed away.
Roscoe's Small Engine Repair appears to have been the follow-on business at this location. Given the overgrowth of weeds on the property, it looks to be out-of-business, too.
