On June 25th, Sullivan Tire teamed with Yokohama, KaBOOM!, the Town of Rockland, and Play Areas for Rockland Kids (P.A.R.K.) to build a brand new playground at Hartsuff Park in a single day for the children and families of Rockland, Mass. and other surrounding communities.
The planning for this playground build began late last year during our 60th Anniversary. When it came to choosing the town to have the playground build, Rockland was an easy decision for us to make. Sullivan Tire was founded in Rockland by Bob “The Chef” Sullivan, and it’s where our first store was and still is located. This was a great way to thank the town that has allowed us to be a part of the community for 60 years.
A “Design Day” was held back in April with the Rockland community, Yokohama, KaBOOM!, and Sullivan Tire to begin the process of creating an ideal playground.
This vision came together due to a wonderful cast of about 287 smiling volunteers. It was a very busy day filled with mixing and pouring concrete, hauling mulch, painting park benches, and assembling the actual playground structures.
The Hartsuff Park playground is now open to the public for all to enjoy.
Thank you to all the volunteers, Yokohama, KaBOOM!, the town of Rockland, P.A.R.K., and everyone who lent a hand in creating this wonderful new space for children and families of all abilities to enjoy!

Here’s the time lapse video we created from “Build Day”:

“The employees at this location are as professional as they get! D.J. Packard & Matt Sechoka went out of their way to resolve a vibration problem I had relating to the tires on my new Ram 1500 pickup. They listened to my concerns and gave me 100% of their attention. After finding two bad tires they replaced them with new ones under warrantee however after driving on the new tires I still noticed some vibration while on the highway, that’s when I returned to ask the professionals at Sullivan’s to double check my truck to rule out any further issues with my truck. D.J. Packard took my truck for the day and after exhaustive testing and inspection of the tires found that the tonneau cover over the bed of the truck was loose enough that it bounced significantly while at highway speeds causing the truck to vibrate. I have witnessed this and fully agree with their assessment of the problem. Sullivan Tire Co. is lucky to have such a professional team of dedicated employees. I won’t hesitate to send my friends to Sullivan’s for their vehicle service. I thought you should know!”

Last week, we shared a customer’s wonderful experience in Weymouth, MA, and wanted to provide some more details on our newest retail location.
The location was formerly occupied by Midas, and was completely renovated by Sullivan Tire during the summer of 2013. The 6,750 square foot facility houses eight service bays. It is staffed by up to twelve full-time employees, including three Master Technicians.
A grand opening celebration took place on Saturday, October 19. Customers were invited to visit the store, enjoy refreshments and win giveaways. Plus, we raffled off Boston Bruins tickets and a hockey stick signed by Bruins defenseman Gregory Campbell.
Sean Galiano, a Master Technician and 23-year veteran of Sullivan Tire, has Managed the store since it’s opening. Galiano resides in Weymouth with his wife and two children, where they are active members of the community. Sean serves on the Weymouth High School Advisory Committee and his son is a Weymouth Wildcat Football player.
“I’m thrilled to take on this new role and to work in the community where my family lives,” said Galiano. “Sullivan Tire is a family owned business whose motto is to treat every customer as if they were a member of your family. For me, it will be especially rewarding to serve the family of Weymouth and to see so many familiar faces on a day to day basis.”
