Mt. Orab Auto Mall set to open Aug. 5

M. O. FordBy Wayne Gates –

The $12 million Mt. Orab Auto Mall project will be open for business on Friday, August 5.
“We are ahead of schedule on both the Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/ Ram store as well as the Ford store.  Our move in date for both of those stores is August 5.  That’s when we want to have our doors open and selling cars out of there,” said Mt. Orab Ford General Manager Mike Carmichael.
He added that the service area would begin working that day as well.
Carmichael said that while the doors would be open in August, the public will be invited to a party the next month.
“We are planning a huge celebration for a grand opening that is probably going to be the first or second week in September,” he said.
“It’s going to be a big celebration and country music show with some local talent as well as a national band. I can’t quite tell you who we’ve got coming to provide entertainment, but I can say that we are all very excited about it,” Carmichael said.
The construction progress is visible to drivers on State Route 32, along with another recent addition to the site.
“We’ve got that truck up there spinning 25 feet in the air, so that’s really great,” Carmichael said.
He added that the number of workers at the two dealerships will begin to climb quickly once they open.
“We currently have 40 employees between the two stores and we plan on doubling that in very short order,” Carmichael said.
“A lot of the people who have sold you or worked on your cars over the years are still here taking care of you. We’ve seen an uptick in our customer service surveys, so we are bringing the might of a big organization with a small town feel.”
Carmichael said that the construction process has gone very smoothly so far.
“Everything that we’ve done working with the local governments has been easy, everybody has done everything they can to keep us on schedule,” he said.
Carmichael also said that future growth at the site is still on the horizon.
“We have room for up to five franchise stores at the facility, and we will also be adding a restaurant and a hotel.  That’s all in negotiations right now,” he said.
“All the response from everyone so far has been very positive.  The uptick and traffic and excitement shows that this is going to be fantastic.”
Carmichael added that the dealerships were both looking forward to participating in the 2016 Brown County Fair in a big way.
A groundbreaking was held on the site on August 27 of last year.  An opening of August 5, 2016 would mean the entire project was completed within one year.
