NEW HENDRICK AUTO MALL CONCORD OPENS

PRIME LOCATION NOW INCLUDES SIX DEALERSHIPS AND 10 NAMEPLATES

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 3, 2014) - Hendrick Automotive Group this week officially opened Hendrick Auto Mall Concord, encompassing six total dealerships and 10 manufacturer nameplates located on both sides of Bruton Smith Boulevard in Concord between Charlotte Motor Speedway and Concord Mills Mall - two of North Carolina's most-popular tourist attractions.


The auto mall features four new dealership facilities including three new franchises to the area: Hendrick KIA of Concord, Hendrick Volkswagen of Concord and Hendrick FIAT of Concord. Hendrick Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Concord has relocated to the auto mall from its previous site at 287 Concord Parkway North.

 

The four new dealerships join the existing Honda of Concord (7650 Bruton Smith Boulevard) and Hendrick Toyota Scion Concord (7670 Bruton Smith Boulevard), which both opened in 2005. Hendrick Auto Mall Concord also operates the nearby Hendrick Collision Center at 7300 Weddington Road NW.

 

Including the April 2012 launch of Hendrick Luxury Auto Mall at Northlake, Hendrick Auto Mall Concord is the second major project in North Charlotte for Hendrick Automotive Group. In the Charlotte area, the company employs more than 2,100 people across its 20 area dealerships, four collision centers and corporate headquarters.

 

"Ever since we started with City Chevrolet back in 1978, Charlotte has been a strong foundation and critical home market for us," said Rick Hendrick, chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group. "The opportunity we've had in this community is one of the primary reasons for our organization's growth, and we will continue to invest here. It's an incredible place to live and do business."

 

Hendrick Volkswagen of Concord marks the manufacturer's second dealership under the Hendrick Automotive Group banner following the opening of Volkswagen of Murrieta (California) in February. The new auto mall also includes the second KIA and fourth FIAT dealerships operated by the Hendrick Automotive Group.

 

"We couldn't grow like this without a continued focus on our team members and customers," said Wes Watkins, Hendrick Automotive Group's market area vice president overseeing Hendrick Auto Mall Concord. "Customers in North Charlotte now have a wider selection of vehicles that includes the innovative and unique products from Volkswagen, KIA and FIAT along with an expanded inventory from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM."

 

Hendrick Auto Mall Concord is adjacent to Hendrick Automotive Group's sister company, 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports. As part of auto mall project, visitors will for the first time have access to the team's facility via a Bruton Smith Boulevard entrance.

 

"The Concord Mills area is a terrific destination for both our dealership customers and fans of racing," Hendrick said. "We're able to offer state-of-the-art amenities within our stores along with shuttle service to the shopping mall, Hendrick Motorsports and other attractions. With the new I-485 connector coming very soon, it's an extremely convenient location with a variety of entertainment options."

 

Hendrick Auto Mall Concord offers more than 900 new and 600 pre-owned vehicles on site with access to more than 6,000 pre-owned vehicles at Hendrickcars.com. More than 210,000 square feet of showroom space sits on a property that spans nearly 30 acres. In total, 133 service bays and numerous customer amenities including Wi-Fi, refreshments and complimentary shuttle service to Concord Mills, Hendrick Motorsports, area attractions and local businesses will be offered by the dealerships.

 

Employing more than 500 people, Hendrick Auto Mall Concord will be open seven days a week for sales and Monday through Saturday for service.
