Help Barry's Bring your General Motors Franchise back to Middletown, RI


In June 2009, during tough economic times, the General Motors Corporation terminated our GM franchise after nearly 55 years, citing below average sales in a very competitive market. 

The Barry Auto Group has served the community and has been a family owned and operated company, since it was established in 1955. Not only have we been selling GM vehicles since that time, but we've been servicing them too.  

As we've continued to provide service through our state of the art AC Delco service center, we have been repeatedly asked by you, our loyal customers, why we no longer sell General Motors vehicles. Since we closed the doors to our GM franchise, it's become clear to us that not only do our customers still prefer Barry's for their vehicle service needs, but they would prefer to purchase their next GM vehicle here as well. 

The people of the surrounding community have expressed their opinions and the overwhelming sentiment is that they wish they had their local GM dealer back. The Barry Auto Group is now asking the community and the public in which we have served for the last 55 years for help. We are going to arbitration to get our GM franchise back and we need your positive input.  

Yes, we want our local GM franchise back at Barry's Middletown!

When we recently replaced our Saab and Buick we purchased a Honda Pilot and a Honda CRV from a local dealer. I'm sure Ford and GM's other competitors appreciate this latest approach to customer focus!
