Look Who’s 55: Roland Tires hits milestone


By Thomas Sellers Jr.

Back on June 15, Roland’s Tire and Automotive celebrated 55 years in operation in Millington with longtime owner Carole still behind the phones assisting potential customers.

The vision of her late husband Clarence Roland began with a loan. Mr. C’s work ethic and family support was passed down to his sons Terry and Eric. And the business is still going strong at 4998 Navy Road under the name of Roland’s Tire and Automotive.

The birth of Roland’s started that June day in 1965. Roland’s has seen expansion, technological changes and various employees.

The motto started by Clarence remained the driving force of Roland’s success to reach 55 years, ‘Serving the Community.” For more information on Roland’s, call 872-6005.
