Merrill, WI – Last month, Wheelers Family Auto Group, which has locations currently in Medford, Abbotsford, Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids, officially brought Chevrolet back to the Merrill community, after the previous dealer Stark Automotive closed the location in 2019.

With the goal to expand jobs and services in Central Wisconsin, Wheelers Merrill location is the fifth city for Wheelers to expand into. With locations in Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, Abbotsford, and Medford.

The location is expected to create 30 jobs in the next 24 months.

“We were excited to open the location in Merrill because we’re excited to bring a car-buying experience to the Wausau-area market that’s based on family values,” said Mary Jo Wheeler, Dealer Principal/Owner.

“We’re thrilled to restore Chevrolet to the Merrill market and support our current and future customers with all their automotive needs ,” said Daniel Wheeler Dealer/Owner.

2020 has had its share of uncertainties, but Wheelers chose to harness the positives and view this year as an opportunity.

“There’s a lot of opportunity here. It’s a great brand, both the Wheeler family and the Chevy brand itself. For two great brands to come together in a new location like Merrill, and to get the Wheeler name on HWY 51, it’s amazing!” said Michael Umhoefer, General Manager. “We’re looking forward to making the car experience fun and exciting again.”
