Main Street Minute: Ryan Chevrolet

Posted: Updated:

When trying to compete with other businesses, it's good to keep things up-to-date. It took over a year of planning, designing and constructing, but the newly designed Ryan Chevrolet on Broadway opened its doors. Painting walls, floors, and ceilings. All of this, to make their customers and employees happy.

"We want people to feel comfortable here. We want people to easily move around the dealership and make them feel like it's a good place for them to come," says owner Kathleen Gaddie.

But they didn't stop there. Everything you see in this dealership is brand new.

"We just decided that if we were going to do this, we were going to absolutely renovate every square inch of this dealership," says Gaddie.

The offices were re-arranged and improvements were made to the employee lounges. Even the roof was raised to allow for more space.

They decided to make the showroom neutral so the focal point could be on the cars.

But, for Gaddie, revamping this store brought back some memories.

"Forty years ago, my father came to Minot, North Dakota and bought a Chevy store. And, we grew it to five stores. This is where it all started," says Gaddie.

The grand opening for this location will be on November 21, and Gaddie says she's thrilled to celebrate her father's legacy.

In addition to all of the changes that the dealership made, the service department has a new entrance. Instead of driving behind the business to get an oil change, drivers can see the entrance right from Broadway.
