Bob & Chuck Eddy looks for new location
After record Chrysler sales nationwide and posting strong local gains in recent months, the Bob & Chuck Eddy Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealership has outgrown its current location on Mahoning Avenue, and its owners are searching for new options.
Co-owner Chuck Eddy said it’s too early to specify where a new dealership might be, but he has no plans to leave Austintown, where the business has been since 1969.
“We’ve outgrown our facility; Chrysler’s future looks good, and ours does, too,” Eddy said. “But if we can’t put a deal together, then we’ll stay where we’re at.”
Eddy added that three pieces of property are being looked at closely in Austintown, but right now, nothing has been decided.
In 2010, Bob and Chuck Eddy opened a separate lot for a Fiat dealership, adjacent to its Mahoning location, and the company has plans to begin selling Fiat’s upscale Alfa Romeo in the near future, one of a handful of dealerships across the country that will have such an offering.
Eddy said there is no time line for a move, but the dealership has planned for years to find new property.
