Discount Tire opens in Baxter

Email

Discount Tire opened quietly in Baxter about a week ago. An opening ceremony Friday was anything but, however, with the presence of former Gov. Jesse Ventura.

Jason Diaz, store manager, said the store — which represents the chain’s 850th one — hired 10 employees. Ventura was present at Friday’s grand opening, along with Baxter city officials. Ventura is a relative of Diaz’s wife, Tiffany.
