MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A car dealer's three year expansion is nearing an end.
This week Betten Chevrolet Cadillac began demolishing a former paint store across Henry Street. The space will become additional customer parking and room for inventory.
In the last three years, Betten's owners have invested $15 million in Muskegon. The money allowed them to remodel their GM store, open Honda and Hyundai dealership and -- later this month -- debut a used car store.
Betten's owner says loyal customers get credit for much of the company's success.
"We are an aggressive dealer and we have lots of repeat and referral business which will enable us to sell more cars, expand, and hire more people," says Chris Baker, Betten's owner and general manager. "We put the gas pedal down and go for it."
The company is calling its expanded presence on Henry Street "Betten's 20 Acre Motor Mall."
