Auto dealerships retool operations to create a better buying experience, according to Mass Live.
An auto dealer needs to move a lot of metal to make back a $13 million investment in two new dealership buildings, but Thomas M. Cosenzi and Carla J. Cosenzi, brother-and-sister owners of the Tommy Car Auto Group knows that new facilities are what it takes in today’s competitive auto market.
Especially if those dealerships are next to other dealerships on Northampton’s King Street, an area emerging as an auto mile with new Lia dealerships, the switch of Burke from GMC trucks to the more varied Chevrolet and the relocation a year ago of Ford of Northampton to the former Dana Chevrolet Volkswagen location.
“It makes it easier for people to shop,” says Carla Cosenzi, the more high-profile personality of the pair. “It really makes sense for people to have different brands side-by-side.”
