Editor's note: An earlier version of this story misstated the number of stores purchased by Kendall Automotive Group in Marysville, Wash.
A Pacific Northwest dealership group acquired a store with two brands, while a used-only dealership group bought its first franchised store in two deals that closed at the end of the second quarter.
Here's a quick look at the transactions involving domestic- and import-brand stores.
Kendall Automotive Group on June 30 purchased Subaru and Chevrolet dealerships in Marysville, Wash., near Seattle.
Kendall, with about 40 locations in four Western states and a Ford store already in Marysville, bought Roy Robinson Subaru and Roy Robinson Chevrolet from the Bjorg family.
Terms of the deal weren't released. The stores have been renamed Kendall Subaru of Marysville and Kendall Chevrolet of Marysville.
Kendall has stores in Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Idaho, and sells more than 20 brands, including Toyota, Lexus, Volkswagen, Honda, Kia, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz and Audi, according to its website.
The family-owned group was founded in 1937 as Merrill Kendall became part of a Ford dealership in Eugene, Ore.
George Pero and Joe Beaver of DCG Acquisitions, a Dave Cantin Group company, handled the transaction.
