If you want to see the newest automotive thing on 28th Street just cruise by 2525 28th St SE and look to the east. There you’ll see the latest enhancements to the Berger Chevrolet campus. Berger was one of the original automotive pioneers on 28th Street in 1965 and since that time your automotive needs have increased significantly. Over the years Berger has kept pace with them by expanding again and again.

The summer of 2015 brings yet another expansion, this time one of their largest ever. To better serve their loyal customers this summer Berger will also be expanding their service operation.  When the project is complete they will have more quick-lube lanes and more service bays in addition to the much larger vehicle display area.

More than three acres of new retail display space are being added to accommodate their truck and SUV inventory. Currently their vehicle inventory is spread across their entire campus.  The additional new, paved area will make for easier shopping by vehicle category. Truck and SUV buyers are usually not interested in sedans and other smaller models while the same is true for sedan shoppers who have little interest in a new truck.

The demolition, excavation, and construction of the additional quick lube lanes and service bays will be ongoing during this project. The project promises to be noisy, dusty, and occasionally crowded due to limited space. Construction equipment will be numerous and active on site. Berger anticipates that the project will be completed by September 1 but are hoping to have it finished sooner.

Through the process they promise to provide the quality service you that you expect from Berger and they appreciate your patience and understanding during this temporary remodeling project. Please let them know if you are inconvenienced in any way during the project.

In the meantime enjoy the construction pictures or, better yet, cruise on over to 28th Street and see for yourself.
