In 1949, Joe Fitzgerald went to work in Glenside at White’s Sinclair Station. In 1953, Joe served in Korea with the U.S. Army. After the war, Joe went back to work at White’s and married Joan Darrow of Glenside. Joe became a partner in White’s in 1955 which had expanded into the tire sales and repair business. In 1957, the first alignment rack was purchased, allowing Fitzgerald’s to provide more complete tire service. In the fall of 1960, the business moved across the street to its present location. In 1975, Joe’s partner passed and Joe became the sole owner, changing the name of the business to Fitzgerald’s Tire & Auto Service.
