About Brothers Tire Sales

Brothers started with a one-room boat shop he bought on North Main Street. As the business grew, he bought an adjacent furniture store, beauty shop and fish market "one right after the other," he says.

He added on a new building about 30 years ago to create the stretch that 15 full-time workers keep hopping today.

Brothers grew up near the coast in eastern North Carolina, moving to Kannapolis in 1937. His wife, Evelyn, was a key part of the business during the 1960s after she left a job at Cannon Mills and she worked up until 1999.

His son, Doug Brothers, and daughter, Jenny Jones, helped out from the time they were old enough, and Dean Freeman, a nephew, was a part-timer in the early days.

Doug's children, Shelley Farris and Brad Brothers, later joined in, along with Jones' two children, Todd and Tracy Roberson, who now lives in Kernersville.

Over the years, the tire business has changed like others, with options filling page after page of computer screens. Marvin Brothers says it was easier to sell tires back when he started. "We didn't have so much to deal with," he says, and didn't have to keep up with things like changing computer systems.

Now Haley points out they may have 15 brands of tires available in an almost unlimited range of sizes. The 1979 A.L. Brown High School graduate has been working at the family business since 1983 after he graduated from N.C. State and he's been president of Brothers Tire since 2000, when Doug retired. His mother worked full time until 2004.
