Idaho's Goode Motor Auto Group, with a March acquisition, joined an exclusive list of auto retailers with Alaskan dealerships.
And after the purchase of the two stores representing eight brands in Juneau, Goode Motor owns all the new-vehicle dealerships in the Alaska capital, according to Matt Cook, the group's CEO.
Goode (GOOD'-ee) Motor on March 1 purchased Mendenhall Auto Center, including Mendenhall Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram-Subaru and Mendenhall Toyota-Honda-Chevrolet, from husband and wife Steven Allwine and Karla Allwine, Cook said. Mark Troupin was a minority partner in the stores, Cook said. The transaction also included a Honda powersports franchise.
The acquired dealerships, which sit on a 6-acre campus made up of several lots, were renamed Juneau Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram-Subaru and Juneau Toyota-Honda-Chevrolet and collectively Juneau Auto Mall. Troupin no longer has equity ownership in the stores but stayed on as general manager, Cook said.
