“Our employees have been working in our stores throughout this pandemic to help our customers keep their tires in good condition and vehicles on the road so that they could get the food, medication, supplies and medical treatment they need,” said Don Barnes III, president of Belle Tire, in a press release. “That’s why we want to encourage all of our employees to get vaccinated and protect themselves.”

The vaccination will be optional for employees, not a mandate, according to Belle Tire.

The company has more than 2,300 employees at 127 locations in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
