“We are very excited about being in Arkadelphia and we look forward to being great community partners,” said Chris Byrd, President of Southwest Auto Collection.
“These dealerships are strategically located in an area where we will be able to serve a large population of this growing community. These are all premier American made products. I believe these manufactures and their management are definitely on the right track in their product design, safety features, technology, value proposition and ultimately delivering what the customers want in an automobile. We look forward to working with manufactures to dramatically improve their market share and we will work with our community leaders to make sure we are able to make this the place to buy and service vehicles for this region of the state. We believe our three dealerships will outperform the competitors due to the historical sales and customer satisfaction and our commitment to offer greater selection and value to our customers. We welcome all of our existing customers along with the rest of the area to visit our new dealerships.”
