Some things will be changing at Barley Automotive in the coming weeks.

But some important things will stay the same.

Barley Automotive will no longer be a General Motors dealer as of Wednesday, October 11, ending a relationship spanning multiple decades.

The dealership will transition to being independent with used vehicles and a service department.

“We’re still going to be here to give the best service we always have and will continue to,” said Scott Barley. “We’re going to fine-tune it and make it better. This kind of opens us to a realm ... where we can do anything. The sky is the limit.”

Barley stressed the name, phone number and location — which has been in the Barley family since 1946 — will remain the same.

“We’re still going to be here to take care of the customers,” he said. “Our goal is still take care of customers, just under a different avenue.

“We’re in a transition with the termination of General Motors. It’s definitely going to take a little bit of time, but everything is still going to be up and running with the service department and used vehicle sales.

“We’re still going to be here to support the community like we have forever.”
