I'm assuming Woodhouse bought the Hyundai dealership from Baxter; can't imagine that Hyundai would let Woodhouse open a dealership a mile from the other.


Good Ol' Gary Sadlemyer rambled enough during a Woodhouse commercial this AM for me to determine they had indeed gotten a Hyundai franch, and also that they're now the only Mazda dealer in Omaha. Wonder why (Olsen)/Performance/Baxter chose to drop them?

Soon all dealerships will be Woodhouse or Performance/Baxter. That can't be good.

Wondering when/if Deery Brothers Automotive from Iowa will dip into Nebraska. Could really shake up the local car industry.

Lexus of Omaha went to a no discount trial a couple months ago. As someone in my mid 30's I love that concept even if I would end up paying a little more. If their not going to make an electric vehicle they need to do something to compete with the no franchise model of Tesla.

I have wondered a few times why Diers from Fremont has never grown through Acquiring another location or three? They have a long time well established dealership with a name that has value in a fairly large area.

Anyway, random thought of the moment.

Apparently Woodhouse bought Atchley the first part of October, I heard Kara's first "Woodhouse Ford of Omaha" radio spot today.

I guess Alfa Romeo of Omaha moved out of the Fiat store and in with Woodlouse Mazda. There's a very simple white letter sign that says Alfa Romeo of Omaha on one of their garages.

More interesting though was an adjacent white letter sign on the same garage that read Maserati of Omaha. Is Omaha getting a Maserati dealership?! No Omaha location is listed on their website

Yes they are. Woodhouse will own it, and they're building it on L next to Alfa. Very exciting news for this market. Next up is likely Bentley, Lamborghini, or McLaren. Ferrari remains a long-shot IMO.

No seriously. They wouldn't just put Maserati of Omaha in their window if they didn't intend on selling new Maseratis.

The Woodhouse colossus put a Nissan dealership in Deerfield Place in Millard, temporary according to their spox. Left unsaid is that 'temporary' means until they get a location built at NE-50/370, I'll wager.

This lot is called "Woodhouse Place" for some reason. Also, haven't seen Kara in a commercial for a couple months, some other outfit is doing them.

I've been MIA from the area for a few months. Did they take the old Baker's bay, or one further East?

I think all of those makes would be pretty far fetched for Omaha. You would need serious spenders around to sustain a car dealership of that caliber. Chicago, New York, and Miami have no problem because there are a ton of celebrities and athletes there to buy the cars and have them maintained there to pay the bills.

My official quote: "Omaha will have a top tier professional sports team before having a Bentley or Lambo dealership."

Further east--in the middle of the strip. There's a groc store of some sort where Baker's used to be.

The majority of the old Bakers is Mega Market and a gym.

Mega Market is a flea market. I checked the place out back in 2013 or 14. Most of the stuff Dillion's didn't rip out when they shut down the Deerfield location was still there. I worked at that store for a few years, so it was a weird experience walking around.

The flea market started out taking up the whole former Bakers store but has now shrunk down to about 1/3 that size. In what was once Bakers produce area we now have a stinky Gym. Then in what was the middle of Bakers you have the Flea Market. that flea market has really shrunk down and now only the best of the junk salesman remain. I think al the junk from all those shops in that flea market put together aint worth 1000 bucks :lol: Basically that flea market is made up of a bunch of hobby/hoarders/crazy people who are like kids "playing business." Next door is a Music Studio. Then Dollar Tree and right about where the old Department of Motor Vehicles offices were is the new Woodhouse Auto Sales store. They must have a 200 cars there inside and out. The Post Office was once on the rocks but is now firmly stable and has been made into the main place in Omaha to get a Passport.
