Automotive Dealerships: Leaving the Competition Behind

 

Many auto dealerships are located near their competitors. It is common to find several dealers co-located in a convenient place such as an auto mall to attract more customers. More than 50% of dealerships are located within five miles of one or more competitor (Dallas Business Journal).

 

Many times, being in such close proximity can be a positive thing. The amount of traffic a single dealership experiences jumps by as much as 75% when located in an auto mall, and Many local governments offer tax incentives for dealerships to group together in a single locale (Dallas Business Journal).

 

However, this arrangement may not work out in a dealership’s favor if they do not measure up to their competition. People are visual by nature and will inevitably be drawn to the most attractive dealership in a grouping. 80% of car shoppers are open to shopping at new locations, so it is imperative that aesthetics be a top priority in attracting new customers (Morpace Omnibus Report).
