Orland Park, IL (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
Zeigler Automotive Group, one of the nation's largest auto dealer groups, today announced its continued expansion with the acquisition of BMW of Orland Park. The dealership, located at 11030 West 159th Street, on the corner of Wolf Road, in Orland Park, opens under Zeigler ownership on July 29 as Zeigler BMW of Orland Park. The dealership offers more than 300 new vehicles and over 80 pre-owned vehicles and was recently named the 2013 Dealer of the Year by DealerRater. Zeigler will be hiring additional staff members as the dealership grows.
“We are excited to add such a successful dealership to our Chicago locations and to our brand,” said Aaron Zeigler, president of Zeigler Automotive Group. “BMW dealerships are rarely on the market and we're proud to now own the dealership. The two-story facility is elegant and spacious, with all the comforts and conveniences customers could ever want. We’ll continue to build on the dealership’s success and ensure every guest has a great experience.”
Zeigler BMW of Orland Park features a new, state of the art facility on just over nine acres, with over 60,000 square feet for BMW sales, service, parts and financing needs. Further, the showroom can comfortably display 18 BMW models. The spacious, modern client lounge offers customers room to relax and includes flat screen TVs, custom furniture, and free Wi-Fi and gourmet coffee. The dealership also includes 24 air-conditioned service bays and over 60 BMW loaner vehicles with complimentary pick-up and drop-off services for customers.
Zeigler Automotive Group sought to acquire a BMW dealership in the Chicago Land area. When they learned last year that the Orland Park dealership might be available, they seized the opportunity and the sale was finalized earlier this summer. The dealership acquisition adds the BMW brand to Zeigler’s Chicago area locations, in addition to dealership locations in Michigan, Indiana and New York. The new BMW store will also build off the success of Zeigler BMW of Kalamazoo, which has experienced a 20% sales increase in the last year.
A grand opening, including refreshments and entertainment, is scheduled for later this summer. All Chicago area community members and media will be invited to attend and a formal media alert will be issued in advance of the grand opening. During the first month of new ownership, BMW will provide Zeigler BMW of Orland Park a special allotment of limited edition models and equipment packages. The dealership will also promote specials and giveaways, to be announced at upcoming dates.
