Now boasting some 400 locations and 7,000 employees in the western United States, Les Schwab serves three locations in Medford, one in Ashland and two in Grants Pass.

One of the biggest independent tire groups, boasting "more than a million tires in stock," the company's no-fuss approach to fast service has earned it an extensive base of longtime regular customers, says local manager Paul Joyner.

Joyner says the company strives to make ties with communities by supporting schools, sports teams and programs such as 4-H.
