Northrim Bank and Attorney General Reuniting Tire Owners with Winter Tires

November 16, 2017

(Anchorage, AK) – The Consumer Protection Unit of the Alaska Attorney General’s Office announced today that Northrim Bank will allow tire owners with tires stored at Johnson’s Tire Hotel, 3330 Denali Street, in Anchorage to come and claim their tires for two more days this week. Bank employees will be at Johnson’s Tires from 12-2 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. Thursday, November 16 and Friday, November 17. Tire owners are encouraged to go and claim their tires.

Tire owners should bring invoices and any other information about their stored tires with them to facilitate tire return.

“Unfortunately, many of the tires do not have the owners information attached,” said Assistant Attorney General Cindy Franklin. “So the more information owners can bring to match up their tires, the faster the process will go.”

Northrim acquired Johnson’s Tires at a non-judicial foreclosure sale on November 7, 2017. Johnson’s Tires had closed without prior notice on October 31, 2017, leaving approximately 150 sets of its customers’ off-season tires locked inside the business. Northrim has been cooperating with the Consumer Protection Unit since they acquired the property to reunite tire owners with their winter tires. Over 60 sets of tires remain unclaimed.

Northrim Bank has posted the hours and other information about tire retrieval on their website. Consumers can still file consumer complaints with the Attorney General by visiting the consumer complaint website.
