They announced the dealership three years ago...
They announced the location two years ago...
They broke ground over a year ago...

And any day now, Teresa can finally go buy her new Honda...assuming she is still among the living, since a lot of time has passed.

What's your point 5:07? They have other businesses to run, ya know?

9:04, isn't the point obvious? They took way too long to make this thing become a reality. That's the point.

Statistically, family wealth is 90% gone by the third generation and 70% gone by the second generation. Lackadaisical attitude and behavior is not a recipe for success. Mark Cuban just said it on Shark Tank last week. Everyone he knows who is successful in business, behaves as if the competition is about to overtake them. I cannot imagine the Huge guy taking this long to complete one of his new dealerships.

Really, 7:34.... you're comparing a couple years to the passing of generations? Your perspective is curious. And not only are they juggling other businesses, but surely they weren't the only entity whose time-table determined the roll out, from municipalities to contractors to Mother Nature.

7:34 maybe you could show us your list of accomplishments for the last 3 years.
I'm sure it is quite impressive.

In the three years we lost a very important member of the team. I hope no one forgot that.

Ray, God bless the patriarch's soul. I am sure he is looking down beaming with pride over this latest addition to the family business. However, the survivors cannot rest on their laurels. Three years is simply too long for this project and I don't want to hear excuses.

The Davidson's have also endured some hardships in recent years. Yet they are being much more aggressive, prolific and timely in bringing about their expansions.

You can get all butt hurt over my critique and shoot me as the messenger, or you can glean some advice from it and buck up. Your choice warden.

I don't work or socialize with Capraras or Davidsons, but have done business with both. Capraras are top shelf when it comes to customer service and standing behind their vehicles. Never knew a Caprara to rest on their laurels.

Ummmm, isn't this an article about a car dealership of which we have 300? Is this development making Pamelia's budget? Not quite sure what the big deal is here.

It's not the Honda place was the only new thing Capraras have been working on in the last 3 years, as their Pulaski place also opened in that timeframe. Far from 'resting on laurels'.

As for Davidsons, could someone tell them that it's time to pull their kids off the commercials? I'd rather drag my sack through a trough of broken glass than have to listen to another kid shrill voice say "Davidsons does it" or listen their lame celebrity impression commercials.
