Here’s the Lowdown on Harry’s HP Tire & Automotive
In 1977, Harry Volkmann was living in California, and there was a drought. Tired of the dry weather and the toll it takes on the land and one’s spirit, he went looking for a better place to live, and made it to Colorado Springs. He decided this was God’s country. Within three short months, Harry sold his house, quit his job, and moved to Colorado unemployed.
Harry found a job in the newspaper selling tires, even though he knew almost nothing about cars. But he was a salesperson at heart and accepted the job. Now four decades later, that tire salesman job has morphed into a 12-bay auto repair and tire shop, employing and supporting six families.
