West Herr Automotive Group Inc. on Monday bought four western New York dealerships selling BMW, Mini, Volkswagen and Audi vehicles from Towne Auto Group, Charles Hardy, director of variable operations for West Herr, told Automotive News.
Towne BMW and Towne Mini, of Williamsville, N.Y., were renamed BMW of Buffalo and Mini of Buffalo, respectively. The former Towne Volkswagen, now West Herr Volkswagen, and Audi Buffalo, retaining its name, are in nearby Bowmansville, N.Y. The cities are east of Buffalo.
The Audi, Mini and Volkswagen brands are first-timers for the West Herr portfolio, the company said. West Herr said it plans in the future to relocate the Mini dealership to a building adjacent to its Acura store in Williamsville.
