ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Customers of the now-defunct Johnson’s Tire Service will finally have a chance to retrieve tires and other possessions that were locked inside the building when the company abruptly went out of business more than a week ago.
Northrim Bank acquired the building, which was JTS’s corporate headquarters and last business location, at an auction earlier this week.
“While the Bank is not legally obligated to do so, Northrim is making every attempt to ensure the tires in the Tire Hotel are returned to their rightful owners,” the bank wrote in a statement on its website. “In that regard, the Bank appreciates your assistance and cooperation in identifying your tires and in identifying yourself as the owner.”
Customers can pick up their tires from the Johnson’s Tire Service Building on Denali Street between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, November 11. More collection times will be available through next week.
“Please be aware that any issues concerning missing tires or the condition of the tires are the responsibility of Johnson’s Tire Service and not the Bank,” Northrim said.
