Partners Jay Feldman of Feldman Automotive and Actor Mark Wahlberg of the Mark Wahlberg Automotive Group are expanding their footprint across the Buckeye State. The dynamic duo has acquired a fifth auto dealership in Avon, Ohio and has renamed the dealership at 37995 Chester Road, the “Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet of Avon.”
The dealership, itself, is nestled on 10.5 acres of land and is equipped with 38,000 square feet of space for the showroom, auto parts and services areas.
"The people of Ohio have really embraced our sales and service standards," said Wahlberg. "With this expansion into the Cleveland Area, we are deepening our bond with our Midwestern customers."
Between 2018 and 2020, Wahlberg began adding “Chevy,” Buick and GMC dealerships to his growing portfolio of investments across the state. In addition to locations in the Worthington and Columbus areas, Mark Wahlberg Airstream & RV made its debut, serving those customers who enjoy the great outdoors.
"Having five dealerships in Ohio gives us the opportunity to provide consumers with a consistent sales and service experience and a huge product inventory," states Feldman, who himself owns 15 dealerships in Michigan and Ohio. "We'll be able to provide our Ohio customers even more brand choices at the lowest prices with this new location."
A grand opening celebration will be held on July 7 and 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with free cheeseburgers from the Wahlburgers food truck and special giveaways.
According to a recent press statement, “In honor of the grand opening weekend, Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet and the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation are making a donation to Joel's Place for Children, an Avon, Ohio non-profit that provides grief support to children.”
The former owner of the dealership, Joe Firment, said, "We are excited about the new energy that Mark and Jay bring to the Chester Road dealership. Our customers are going to love the experience and talent they bring to the marketplace."
Along with a bit of Hollywood charm, all five locations are hiring for key sales and service positions, as more jobs are coming into the state. This is good news amongst the lingering unemployment numbers. Plus… Who wouldn’t want to work for the Wahlbergs?
