WICHITA — After less than a year in business, the Scholfield Select Pre-Owned Center has closed.
"You know, we just never really got to first base over there," says managing partner Steve Hatchett. "Our timing was bad.”
The dealership opened late last year in the former Saturn dealership at 8800 W. Central.
That's near where Hatchett's group has a new and used Hyundai dealership.
"It was one too many used cars lots in the same area," Hatchett says.
Part of the issue, he says, is "it's got a pretty steep overhead because it was a full dealership."
Now, Hatchett is looking for a franchise to put there, though he'd rather not say which ones he's eyeing.
"I hate to say because, you know, there's other guys looking at the same stuff."
