The addition of the Buick GMC franchise in Atlanta last year, and now the Buick GMC Mall of Georgia location, is further affirmation of our commitment to and belief in the quality, vitality, and long-term prospects of the General Motors brands portfolio.
Buford, GA (PRWEB) July 16, 2010
Jim Ellis, President of Jim Ellis Automotive, announced today that his family-owned Georgia dealership group has acquired the Buick GMC franchise at the Mall of Georgia in Buford.
Ellis acquired the dealership from John Bailey, a long-term dealer in the Buford area. Jim Ellis Buick GMC Mall of Georgia is scheduled to open August 2, 2010.
“The acquisition of the Buick GMC franchise in the Mall of Georgia area is a culmination of efforts over several years by Jim Ellis to enter this important automotive market in Georgia,” remarked Jimmy Ellis, Vice President of Jim Ellis Automotive.
“For almost forty years, my Dad, Mr. Ellis, has carefully evaluated the opportunities to add quality brands to the Jim Ellis portfolio. The addition of the Buick GMC franchise in Atlanta last year, and now the Buick GMC Mall of Georgia location, is further affirmation of our commitment to and belief in the quality, vitality, and long-term prospects of the General Motors brands portfolio.”
From the fuel-efficient GMC Terrain, to the segment-busting 2010 Buick Lacrosse and 2011 Regal, these GM brands are full of exciting developments and innovations. Last year, Buick took the Lacrosse from a ho-hum family sedan to a competitive luxury driver, this year, they are doing the same with the sleek new Regal. The GMC brand continues to boast solid, reliable work trucks, pick-ups, SUVs and vans that are great for everything from hauling and towing to road trips.
The Buick GMC dealerships in Atlanta and the Mall of Georgia make a total of three General Motors franchises for the dealer group. Jim Ellis Chevrolet began in 1992 and has grown to one of the top-ranked Chevrolet dealerships in the Southeast.
Jim Ellis’s first dealership was the Atlanta Volkswagen store in 1971.
The family owned and operated business has eight dealerships in Atlanta - Audi, Buick GMC, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Mazda, Porsche, Saab, VW. They also have four dealerships in Marietta - Audi, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Volkswagen - and now Buick GMC at the Mall of Georgia! Jim Ellis also operates an all-brands central collision center and body shop in Atlanta.
