The Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce recently held a 50th Anniversary Ribbon Cutting at Bartlett Tire in Heber Springs. In 1967 Loy and Linda Bartlett moved to Heber Springs to start an independent retail and retread tire business. They had two different locations before settling at their current location on Hwy 25B. The business is still family owned and operated within the family by son Dennis, daughter Shelly and grandson Andy. This year celebrates 50 years in business, a true milestone that makes them one of the oldest locally owned businesses in Heber Springs.
