Morrison Tire has been in the business of automotive service since our humble beginnings in 1935. From our inception in Long Beach to our 30+ years in the Garden Grove community, our experience and dedication to providing the best auto solutions and customer service possible puts us in a league of our own. Morrison Tire's leading distinction is our unyielding commitment to treating our customers like family.
Originally named Barnes & Delaney, what would become the first Morrison family-owned store opened on the corner of Atlantic and Willow in Long Beach in 1935. The shop quickly gained notoriety in the neighborhood for its incredible inventory of tires. Shortly after the store's opening, James S. Morrison took notice of the potential of Barnes & Delaney. At the time James was an accountant for Goodyear. After a few visits to the Long Beach store, James bought Barnes & Delaney and became the first of the Morrison legacy to enter the automotive industry.
In 1967, James and his son Gary moved the shop to Cherry and Bixby in Long Beach. The move allowed Morrison Tire to expand its offerings from mainly tire-related products to a full range of automotive services.
In the early 1970s Morrison Tire purchased and opened its first Garden Grove location on Chapman and Valley View. With other family members entering the picture, the new space operated five bays and quickly became the go-to shop for the Garden Grove locals.
Flash forward 20 years to the early 90s when the Morrison family built the second Garden Grove building adjacent to its first location. Morrison Tire currently operates here. The two story, 13 bay facility houses four generations of Morrisons, a group of loyal employees with more than 20 years of loyalty, and a comprehensive range of service and tire offerings.
Morrison Tire has come a long way from its beginnings offering tire re-treads and whitewalls to the advanced automotive services offered today. Adapting to the evolution of the automotive industry, Morrison Tire and its staff are knowledgeable of all advances in maintenance and repairs. Yet one thing has remained constant through Morrison Tire's 83-year history, its unmatched commitment to customer service.
Morrison Tire is excited for the continued advancement in the automotive service industry and look forward to being your choice for tires and service for the next 80+ years.
