Bergstrom Automotive Group completed its purchase of Pommerening Chrysler Dodge Jeep, 237 N. Washburn St., on Nov. 9 and will re-open the dealership on Wednesday, Nov. 14 as Bergstrom Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
The following sign was taped to the showroom’s front door on Monday afternoon …
Attempts to reach Art or Chris Pommerening for comment were unsuccessful. Messages left with Bergstrom officials were not returned.
The purchase, combined with manufacturers’ decision to relieve Norm Mueller of his franchises to sell Chrysler, Lincoln and Mercury models (he still sells used vehicles) and Bergstrom’s acquisition of Racette Ford in September 2010, means Bergstrom operates every new car dealership in Oshkosh.
UPDATE: The company issued a press release today that indicates it will operate Bergstrom Chrysler Dodge Jeep out of the same location Pommerening occupied in the short term, but intends to “invest in a new facility, but the location is undetermined at this time.”
Those of you used to going to Pommerening for repairs and maintenance should know the service and parts departments will be merged into the company’s Jackson Street location going forward.
This is also Bergstrom’s second Chrysler Dodge Jeep location in the Fox Valley. The company also operates the same dealership in Kaukauna.
