Maguire plans latest dealership renovation on Elmira Road


ITHACA, N.Y.—The nature of car dealerships requires a fairly regular amount of renovation. As brands seek to redefine their image every several years, branded dealers are expected to keep pace with the latest aesthetics, technology and experiences.

But beyond the new furnishings and tech installations, dealerships owners are free to renovate and rebuild as they choose. Local dealership mogul Phil Maguire, President of the Maguire Family of Dealerships, is particularly active in that regard.

In the past several years, Maguire has built a new Nissan dealership in the village of Lansing, performed a gut renovation of their For-Lincoln dealership on South Meadow Street, and renovated and expanded their Chrysler Jeep Ram dealership further down the road.
