Brose Auto Group, which was founded 41 years ago, is getting out of the new car business.
Grant Brose, President of Brose Auto Group Inc., said in a email today that the family owned dealership will be exiting the business effective Tuesday, May 18. The new owner will be Craig Denney of Gadsden Alabama. He also owns Nissan of Gadsden.
Marvin W. Brose founded the family-owned new car dealership in 1977, operating as a Chevrolet retailer in their small home town in southern Ohio. The family, which includes sons Greg Brose and Grant Brose (along with their families), moved to Corinth in the fall of 1987, opening at the current location on Highway 72 East.
Opening in Corinth originally with Chevrolet, Buick and Chrysler, Brose went thru different manufacturer lineups during the past 31 years. The current lineup consists of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Nissan, which will remain the same under the new ownership.
The Brose Autoplex opened on Highway 72 East in Corinth in 1987.
