Courtesy Automotive Group has added another pre-owned center to its growing franchise of used and new car dealerships from Lafayette to Morgan City. The new Abbeville store, located at 101 W. Summers Drive, is the city’s second pre-owned center.

The company has two such locations in both Morgan City and in Lafayette, and one each in St. Martinville, Franklin, Breaux Bridge and New Iberia.

“These Courtesy Value Preowned Centers were established to offer consistent rewards programs across the entire Courtesy Automotive Group, like 24-hour emergency towing and roadside assistance, free carwash with oil changes and reward points that can go toward parts and accessories, just to name a few,” Michelle Hargroder Simon, general manager at Courtesy Vermilion in Abbeville, said in announcing the new location. On June 4 at 1 p.m., the company will conduct a ribbon-cutting at the W. Summers Drive location.

At year end, Don Hargroder’s Courtesy Automotive Group holdings included Courtesy GMC Buick and Courtesy Cadillac in Lafayette, Courtesy GMC Buick in Abbeville, Courtesy Ford Lincoln in Breaux Bridge, Courtesy Cadillac GMC in New Iberia, Courtesy Chevrolet GMC Buick in Franklin, Courtesy Toyota Mazda in Morgan City and Courtesy Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in St. Martinville.

For six years running, Courtesy has been the No. 1 GM dealer group in Louisiana. Last year the company ranked No. 10 on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana with $223 million in 2010 revenues.
