CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – An official groundbreaking was held Wednesday for a high-end car dealership in Chicopee. The new Mercedes-Benz dealership is being built at the site of the former Plantation Inn on Burnett Road.
In about a year’s time, the dealership will be one of the first things you will see when you exit the Massachusetts Turnpike at Exit 6. Owner Rich Hesse told 22News that the site is exactly what they are looking for, and they are excited to be doing business in Chicopee.
Hesse believes the dealership will be extremely profitable, and helpful for the community.
“We have done extensive research. This is an underserved market for Mercedes Benz in the western Massachusetts area, and we are really excited to be here,” Hesse said.
There are currently no other Mercedes Benz dealerships in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, or Berkshire Counties. Lewbar Imports, a Mercedes Benz dealer in West Springfield, closed about a decade ago.
