The owner’s name might have changed since 1912, but Western Slope Auto remains a family owned business. Mike Ferris acquired the dealership in the late seventies when it was located on first and main street in Grand Junction and he has been building the business ever since. This dealership has seen Volkswagen, Mazda, Mercedes and Subaru in the past and now has some beautiful new buildings to house Ford, Lincoln, and Toyota.
Other than the brands they carry, the major factor that sets Western Slope Auto apart is their customer service. They strive to make it a family focused environment, with excellence in customer service. They are more focused on getting your family in the correct vehicle and making the personal connection than just hitting sales numbers. The employees feel a connection to the dealership as well; some of them have worked for Western Slope Auto for over 30 years! They all enjoy and encourage the family-friendly atmosphere.
With 109 employees (the most they have ever had), Western Slope Auto is a dealership that can accommodate all of your needs. They offer all the services that you need: new and used cars, service and maintenance, auto parts and more. Western Slope Auto also plans to expand their car lots in order to better showcase their vehicles and expand their used car area.
Last year when they decided to expand their business and add new facilities, they started thinking about upgrading their network connections as well. “We had been limping along for a while and decided we needed a new company to help us straighten things out.” said Digital Manager, Karrie Shepard. Karrie had heard of Networks Unlimited’s excellent reputation in town and hasn’t been disappointed since making the switch. “It has been great so far, and Networks has worked so well with our other partners. It was the right choice for us to make.” Shepard stated.
Since working with Networks Unlimited they’ve had a positive experience with the genuine and honest nature of the company. “Networks is very upfront about what services they can and can’t perform and if they don’t have answers right away they find them.” Said Tracy Noland, Office Manager at Western Slope Auto. Tracy also liked the fact that she would be working with a company where she knows the employees and interacts with them out in the community as well as in the office. Both Networks Unlimited and Western Slope Auto value personal relationships and look forward to building on the partnership.
