THE RUMORS ARE true
Public Service Garage, the Marquette dealership for GMC, Buick, and Cadillac, is being sold to a Minnesota group.
The dealership, now owned by John Veiht, had been in the same family for almost 90 years. It started back in 1929, in the depths of the Depression, as a business that repaired farm implements. Hence, the name “public service.”
But over the years it’s sold Jeeps, Buicks, Pontiacs, Cadillacs and GMC’s.
“It’s hard to walk away from,” Veiht says, “but I’ll be 67 next year and I didn’t have any successor in the family. And this is a good group we’re selling to. I think they’ll be retaining most of the staff. Our customers shouldn’t notice any change in the service they get.”
Representatives from the new ownership group are coming to town tomorrow (Wednesday) for the official announcement.
