Head of the GAIN Group, Peter Trzewik, said the deal has been in the works for a couple of years and represents a “nice addition to our portfolio".
He said it will be business as usual at that location, but there will be a new building and new location for the dealership at some point.
“We will build them a new store in two or three years, similar to what we did with Audi and Porsche,” he said.
Trzewik said the current location is difficult in terms of access and also does not afford the brand an opportunity to catch the eye of passing motorists as the intersection is simply too busy. He would not divulge the proposed new location as that real estate transaction has not yet completed.
As for staffing, the intention is to hold onto the staff currently there. “Like we did with Speedway, most of those people are still with us,” he said. “In today’s labour market you need every good person that comes your way. It’s not easy to find good people right now.”
