A new Pontiac-Oldsmobile dealership has been opened in the Bountiful area.
Barber Brothers, located at 2023 S. 625 West in Woods Cross and owned by Sam, Charles and John Barber, opened Nov. 1.Sam and Charles Barber were both working for Salt Lake area dealerships when a small Chevrolet dealership in Morgan became available for sale in 1980. They purchased it in early 1981 and operated it until they sold it in early 1988.
John has been a partner in the dealerships since 1983.
"Since we opened, sales have been good," said Sam Barber, president of the new firm. "In fact, they have been much better than I anticipated.
"The Bountiful area market has been very good to us since we opened. It seems that many people in the area have just been waiting for a Pontiac-Oldsmobile dealership to open in this area."
Barber Brothers is the only Pontiac-Oldsmobile dealership in the Bountiful area, said Sam.
Another brother, Fred, operates a Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge dealership in Spanish Fork.
