Company Overview

The first Purcell location was opened in 1936 by Robert M. Purcell, in Washington, Missouri. He established his second location in Granite City, Illinois, in 1951 and the third location in DeSoto, Missouri was opened in 1964 by his son, Robert G. Purcell. Under the direction of Robert G. and his wife Juanita, these three locations have expanded to more than 60 locations, 6 retread plants and a fleet of vehicles that provide pickup and delivery service to 41 states. Purcell is currently ranked as the third largest independent commercial tire dealership in North America, the nation’s largest retreader for off-the-road tires and one of the 10 largest independent tire store chains in the United States.
