Joe Ferguson Buick-GMC Truck completed the first major renovation of the dealership at 950 S. Academy Blvd. this month. The changes include a new archway entrance built with gold, silver and onyx accents, permanent offices for finance and sales personnel and an enclosed area for customers to meet with service advisers.

Dave Stock, owner and principal of the dealership, said the $1.5 million project was part of General Motors' 'Essential Brand Elements ' program in which the automaker made financial incentives available to dealers to upgrade aging facilities. Ferguson GMC-Buick's showroom and service complex was built in 1987 by a previous owner of the dealership and acquired by Ferguson group in 1990. The dealership had only a Pontiac franchise until 2000, when it added Buick and GMC, General Motors dropped the Pontiac line in 2008 after it sought U.S. Bankruptcy Court protection from its creditors.

The remodeling project has been in the planning stages for more than three years and began construction in October. Ferguson Buick-GMC has more than 60 employees.
