But if they improve the road, won't they sell fewer tires?

A Boston developer is hoping to receive town permitting for a new Goodyear store on Route 85 by the end of the summer, as part of project that will include road improvements for the area.

Ernest Pettinari, and attorney for the development firm Samuels & Associates, said the company will soon submit paperwork to the town’s planning, zoning and conservation boards for the new retail store. If the project wins approval, the firm has agreed to pay for the relocation of a road leading up to the proposed store from Dilla Street.

The road, Old Cedar Street, would be relocated to a new spot behind Wendy’s on Route 85. As the final part of the plan, the town would then block off the left turn option into and out of Wendy’s, which officials say has been to blame for numerous accidents.
