Hendrick Automotive Group purchased Ivan Leonard Chevrolet from owner Ivan J. Leonard Jr. and in April re-opened as Hendrick Chevrolet of Hoover.
The dealership, which remains at 1620 Montgomery Highway, is the most recent addition to the Hendrick Hoover Auto Mall.
Based in Charlotte, Hendrick Automotive Group now operates 89 dealerships throughout the country, including two in the Birmingham area.
The Hendrick Hoover Auto Mall adds Hendrick Chevrolet to the Hendrick Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM operation, which opened in April 2011. The dealerships are adjacent to one another on Montgomery Highway.
“We couldn’t be more excited about expanding the Hendrick Hoover Auto Mall,” said Ryan Regnier, Hendrick Automotive Group market area vice president. “The Birmingham area is such a terrific market, especially for trucks, and Hendrick Chevrolet of Hoover features a brand new showroom to spotlight Chevy’s full lineup of attractively designed and innovative new vehicles.”
