Morrie’s Automotive is breaking ground Thursday, Nov. 1 on a new West Bend, Wisconsin, Honda dealership. The ceremony will mark the beginning of construction which is set to be completed by late summer 2019.
The new facility will be the first Honda dealership in West Bend and the first dealership for Morrie’s Automotive in southeastern Wisconsin. In entering the market, Morrie’s plans to change the automotive ownership experience by introducing the community to its ‘Buy Happy®’ philosophy. ‘Buy Happy’ is about simplifying and delivering a stress-free automotive experience. And it’s about making ownership fun, convenient and unlike what people come to expect from dealers. ‘Buy Happy’ is rooted in a number of promises including Morrie’s Best Price First, its no-haggle approach to selling cars.
When complete, the West Bend Honda will be the third Morrie’s dealership in the state of Wisconsin.
During the groundbreaking ceremony and development of the dealership, Morrie’s will use its ‘Tiny Morrie’s Honda’ trailer in West Bend to engage the local community. The miniature dealership will allow shoppers to get a taste of what is to come and serve as a platform for hiring fairs, driving clinics, community engagement and Honda product demonstrations in the months prior to the opening of the dealership.
