Stephanie Pepe of Oswego won a 2014 Chevrolet Traverse as the grand prize in the 2013 Chevy Youth Soccer Breakaway Giveaway sweepstakes it was announced by Rich Burritt, vice president and co-owner, Burritt Motors.
“The CYSBG is a sweepstakes that we manage in association with the Oswego Youth Soccer program,” Burritt said. “Chances for prizes such as HD televisions provided by Chevrolet are sold through the youth soccer program and 100 percent of sales goes back to the soccer program. Chevrolet also provides equipment to the youth soccer program. This is the first time Burritt Motors has had the grand prize winner in the North East Region.”
Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Co-owner Chris Burritt’s grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963. To expand in a larger market, Chris’ father, Richard, purchased the assets of a Chevrolet dealership that had been located on Oswego’s East Third Street. About a year later, he built the present dealership on Rt. 104.
Burritt Motors recently completed a seven-month, $2.2 million expansion and renovation of their entire dealership. The expansion included a new and expanded show room, new customer lounge, new service area with seven more service bays, a vehicle photo gallery to take a virtual test drive on the web site, and new administrative offices. “This has given better resources to bring to customers to both extend the lives of their cars and to make a more positive experience,” Burritt said. The dealership celebrates its 59th anniversary this year and can be reached at (315) 343-8948, www.burrittmotors.com or www.themechanixgarage.com.
