Bill Oades Sr., the founder of the business, started his tire and auto service business on December 7, 1987 in Kansas City, Kansas at State Avenue Goodyear. This followed a 16 year career with Mobil Oil Corporation, where Bill first went to work after graduating from Rockhurst College. Over the past 25 years, Bill sold his original business in Kansas City Kansas in 2002, opened Blue Valley Goodyear in 1991, built and opened Douglas Tire in 2003. Since day one, Bill has stressed “customer service” as the way to grow and sustain his business.
Bill Oades (Billy) Jr. spent nine years working the stores during his education years. After ten years in the commercial insurance business, Billy returned in September, 2012 to assist in the growth of the stores, complementing Bill in the customer service department while also working on social marketing, internet sales, and revenue growth.
Jimmy Oades, the youngest of Bill’s six children, has been his General Manager of the stores the last two years. Prior, he spent nine years assisting in all phases of the store operation during his high school and college years.
Bill shares with pride that he and wife, Peggy, graduated all six of their children from the University of Kansas over a 21 year consecutive period.
Bill, his family, and his employees believe in their Mission Statement: “To serve God by making our customers’ motoring more pleasant, easy, safe, and economical, all while treating them with integrity and honesty.” Living the Mission Statement is assisted by their participation in the AAA Approved Auto Repair Program, being an A+ member of the Kansas City Better Business Bureau, participation in the NAPA True Blue program which provides the stores with competitively priced replacement parts and mechanic training.
