A Quick History of Paul Bailey's Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram

The history of our dealership here at Paul Bailey's Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram spans several decades, and it's still part of the Bailey family to this day. The business began with Ernest Bailey, who opened up an auto repair shop in 1928 that grew and expanded as the decades went on. Ernest became a new car dealer in 1932, and it wasn't long before he built our dealership in 1937, which is where we continue to do business to this day under the expert leadership of Maureen Bailey, Ernest's daughter and our dealership's current president.

Paul Bailey's Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Roots Go Deep

Our family dealership has been proudly serving our community for just a handful of years short of a century, and the Bailey family has been a major part of it the entire time. Our dealership began with Ernest, was named for his son Paul, and now it is in Maureen's hands. So, you could say that selling cars and delivering a top-notch customer service experience is in our blood.

Of course, it's not just the members of the Bailey family who have been around for so long. Many of our team members have also been with our company for many years. Some of the folks on our team have been with us for decades! With dedicated employees come dedicated customers, with our dealership's success attributed to those customers and the friends and family they have referred through the years.

It's always been our goal to build positive, long-lasting relationships with our customers and employees, and we're honored to have been a part of our community for so many years. We hope to continue growing and keep our history of quality service going strong.
