Shults Auto Group To Celebrate 50th Anniversary With Block Party

Shults Auto Group will celebrate the 50th anniversary at the Shults Chevrolet Cadillac dealership in Jamestown on Saturday starting at 2 p.m.

Shults Auto Group has a long history in Jamestown, dating back to 1970 when Edmond R. Shults and Donald A. Gage bought controlling interest in what was, Berglund Chevrolet. In 1971, Shults purchased Gage’s interest and became Ed Shults Chevrolet Inc. In 1981, brothers Edmond R. Shults, Jr. and Tim M. Shults purchased Ed Shults Chevrolet Inc..

“My father was a car guy his whole life, graduating in 1954 from the GM Institute in Detroit, and returning to Jamestown starting at Parket Motors as a salesperson,” said Tim Shults, president of the Shults Auto Group.

The Shults family has invested millions of dollars in facility enhancements and building ground up facilities over the years using local contractors and suppliers. Shults will be leading the way, with the announcement of its electric vehicle initiative named, Shults Go. The installation of public EV chargers at all dealerships is already underway, including DC fast chargers.

“We believe electric vehicles will be an intricate part of the automotive landscape into the future and we want to provide our customers access to EV charging while they visit our locations,” Shults said.
