Well it's official the O'Regan's Automotive Group have bought the Halifax Mercedes-Benz Dealership.
They may as well, it's not as if Isnor Motors sell more then 50 cars per year anyways. I mean, how many 85 year old geezers with money and 30 year old SUV driving soccer moms live in the HRM?
It has absolutely ZERO baring on my life in any way shape or form, but interesting.... damn O'Reagan's are gonna own it all soon...
My cousin put his lexus is300 away for the winter and bought a benz ml320 suv for a winter beater last month from isnor motors.
I think we're about the only independant dealership left in town right now then. O'regan or Steele own EVERYTHING. I know we've been approached, but so far we've managed to stay unsold. But for the right price I'm sure we could be bought....
Not such a bad thing.. while I don't want to see Steele and O'Reagan's own at all, having some people at Halifax BMW who actually WANT to try and sell somebody a car would be a nice change of pace...
ie. everyday people drive nice cars too. So, i'm sure they sell quite a few benz's.
Oh steveo, we will see won't we...... hehehe
w00t!! now we get Dad's discount on service for our car!
O'Regans also told dad today that he is going to be the collision guy for them
Not unless Steele takes it first!
Are you with the Subaru/Audi dealer?
Oregan's came to our school (well...to the motor vehicle repair program) and offered to take our resumes and fill out applications so that we can do our apprenticeship there and crap like that. they told us what they own, they own everything except for....something, and they are gonna spread that all across the country.
Nah I work at the BMW dealership, but after I posted that I thought, and there a re a couple of other independant places, Dexters comes to mind as does Hillcrest VW, and the honda dealerships.
they will, steele is big, for christs sake, his dad owned Canadian Airlines
I thought Hillcrest was Steele too?
As well as Atantic Print, and Newfoundland Capital, and hell knows what elese!
Shareholders own Newfoundland corp.
Steele owns less then half of atlantic print.
Steele will never get BMW, nor will orgeans due to strict franchise rules with regards to owning other makes ie Jag, merc.
As for audi, dexter will not sell to steele, even though steele owns the building he is in.
Yeah.. that airline that went bankrupt and was sold off to it's competitors.. money making machine that was.
BOOO... all owned by oregans means no competition in prices
