Tire Store Has New Owners
They have been business owners only three weeks - and married only three months.

But Mike and Chris Stagakis, who have taken over the Big O Tires store in Riverbank from "Dimi" (Dimitrios) Voulgarakis, appear to be prospering despite the long hours and hard work associated with a business under new ownership.

Big O Tires will continue to offer brand name tires, custom wheels, alignments, brakes, shocks, struts and other services. The business is located at 2213 Patterson Road (northeast corner of the Oakdale Road intersection) and the telephone number is 209-869-7300.

Besides the usual activities associated with a tire service center, Mike would like to see more air conditioning work come in.

"It's not that essential in the Bay Area, except maybe in San Leandro. But you need air conditioning in the Central Valley," he said.

Mike has been an automobile mechanic for more than 20 years and comes from the Bay Area.
