ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Burke Centre Automotive in Burke, Va., is merging with Wiygul Automotive Clinic's chain of seven retail tire and automotive service stores in Virginia and Maryland.
Burke Centre Automotive owner Chris Burr will join the Wiygul senior management team, and the single location dealership eventually will be rebadged with Wiygul Automotive signage, co-owner Zack Wiygul told Tire Business. The deal is expected to close June 21.
Mr. Wiygul said the Burke operation, which opens a new market for the 40-year-old Wiygul dealership, is a "natural fit for us."
Burke is a "census-designated place" in Fairfax County, Va., southwest of Washington D.C. with a population of about 58,000.
