Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Chris’ grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963. To expand in a larger market, Chirs’ father, Richard, purchased the assets of a Chevrolet dealership that had been located on Oswego’s East Third Street. About a year later, he built the present dealership on Route 104.
Burritt Motors recently completed a seven-month, $2.2 million expansion and renovation of their entire dealership. The expansion included a new and expanded show room, new customer lounge, new service area with seven more service bays, a vehicle photo gallery to take a virtual test drive on the web site, and new administrative offices.
The dealership celebrates its 58th anniversary this year and can be reached at 343-8948, www.burrittmotors.com or www.themechanixgarage.com.
