eTyres Celebrates Double-Digit Growth

Despite the recession, online tyres retailer etyres has reported that its weekly sales figures have seen double-digit growth to those achieved in the equivalent week in 2008. The most recent result reported showed a 24 per cent increase, mainly due to drivers seeking to drive down their vehicle maintenance costs.

Tony Bowman, Managing Director of etyres, said:  “We’re delighted that we’ve seen continuous double-digit growth for the past 12 months, even during these difficult times.  Consumers are turning to the internet to find cheaper prices on everyday essential items like tyres.  They are not exciting products, but everybody needs them and they don’t want to pay a penny more than they have to.

“Many people think that if they have to economise on tyres they have to buy economy brands, but that’s not the case with us.  Our customers get premium range tyres for the same price that the high street depots are charging for mid-range and economy products, and we fit them at their home or work saving our customers time and hassle as well as money.”
