Sweeney Auto: Dealerships' sales rank high in U.S. and Ohio
BOARDMAN -- The Sweeney auto dealerships were able to mark a steady increase in their Buick, Pontiac, GMC and Chevrolet sales last year.
Sweeney Buick Pontiac GMC was ranked No. 1 in sales among all Buick Pontiac GMC dealerships in the country. It also ranked first in General Motors retail sales in Ohio and Buick Rendezvous sales nationwide.
It also ranked nationally as the No. 3 seller of GMC Envoys, No. 4 seller of Grand Prix, No. 5 seller of all Buicks and No. 8 seller of all Pontiacs.
Sweeney Chevrolet ranked as the No. 2 seller of Chevrolet Trailblazers nationwide, No. 2 seller of all Chevrolets in Ohio and No. 3 seller in GM sales in Ohio.
The Sweeney family said its success lies in its large inventory. The dealerships have at least 1,200 vehicles at any time. The Sweeneys broke ground last year for a new Chevrolet dealership across Market Street from the Buick Pontiac GMC store.
The family expects to have a 12 percent increase in sales this year.
