Sales Operations Return to Sweeney’s Buick Building

BOARDMAN, Ohio — Sales operations at Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC resumed Wednesday at 7997 Market St. in the front area of the dealership’s building, which was not heavily damaged by the 90-plus mph micro-burst storm Nov. 5.

The day after the storm, the Sweeney family combined operations across the street in their Sweeney Chevrolet building, 8010 Market St.  The Buick GMC building sustained water damage and major structural damage to the service and parts operations as well as some executive offices and storage areas.

While the sales department is open at Sweeney Buick GMC, the organization will continue to operate service and parts in the Sweeney Chevrolet building until further repairs can be made.

“The community support has been really amazing,” said Alexa Sweeney Blackann, vice president.  “Thanks to everyone who sent meals and offered support.  We are getting back on our feet every day.  Taking care of our customers and minimizing the disruptions are the top priorities.”

Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC is one of Ohio’s largest dealerships, offering one of the largest new car inventories in the Midwest.  According to 2016 sales reports, Sweeney sold the most new GM vehicles in the Mahoning and Shenango valleys.

“We are excited to be back in the sales offices less than a week after the storm,” saidDerek Snyder, executive manager of Sweeney Buick GMC.  “We didn’t lose any momentum in the sales department and we are on track for a great November.”
