“It’s a good time to be in the car business,” says one car dealership owner in Wisconsin. This isn’t just part of some sales spiel either.
“People just seem ready to do something,” Wally Sommer, whose family owns Buick-GMC and Subaru dealerships in Mequon, Wisc., explained to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recently. What he’s talking about is ending the looky-loo stage, getting off the fence, and actually buying a new car. “We’re seeing it from a lot of different types of customers. It’s a good time to be in the car business.”
Sommer says his GM sales are up 40% over last year, and Subaru sales have increased 20%.
