LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Clason Buick-GMC purchased the former Ray Hutson Chevrolet along Mormon Coulee Road.
Clason tripled the size of its current business, buying about 33,000 square feet.
The space has been vacant since Ray Hutson's owner Mike Hutson closed the Chevy dealership in July 2009.
Clason will use the property primarily for additional lot space.
"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to make a move on it," said Clason owner Steve Doll . "We're looking for the future, a great opportunity for us to grow as a company and into the community."
Doll has already hired two new employees, and plans to hire more as business increases.
He declined to comment on the price of the acquisition.
