Spitzer Management Inc., which does business as Spitzer Autoworld, on June 1 acquired two dealerships in northern Pennsylvania, according to the stores’ seller Brian Wasko.
Spitzer of Elyria, Ohio, bought St. Marys Ford and St. Marys Chevrolet-GMC in St. Marys, Pa., from Wasko of St. Marys Auto Group.
St. Marys is northeast of Pittsburgh.
Wasko told Automotive News in an email that Spitzer also is slated to buy his St. Marys Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram-Fiat dealership.
The two dealerships were renamed Spitzer Ford St. Marys and Spitzer Chevrolet-GMC of St. Marys.
The acquisition follows growth last year for Spitzer, which in October bought Ford-Lincoln and Honda dealerships from Greg Murray in DuBois, Pa., also northeast of Pittsburgh. In January 2021, the group acquired Rick Case Hyundai-Genesis of Cleveland and Rick Case Honda in Euclid, Ohio, from Rick Case Automotive Group.
In fall 2020, Spizer acquired Chevy-Buick-GMC-Cadillac and Subaru dealerships, also in DuBois.
Spitzer was founded in 1904 in Grafton, Ohio, by George Spitzer. Today, the group includes a fourth generation and now has more than 20 dealerships in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida.
Drew Picon of DCG Acquisitions, a Dave Cantin Group company, handled the transaction.
