Since closing down their Spokane Valley location a few months ago the former home of Barton Auto on E. Sprague, near U City has looked very empty. But that will be changing in the coming weeks as Mike King of NAI Black and Tim Penna of Windermere Manito have successfully sold the property the Spokane based Auto Credit Sales chain of used auto dealerships.
Auto Credit Sales is currently planning a new auto sales center for the site which sits at 10819 E. Sprague Ave. However, the company is only moving to this new site, and will close their current Spokane Valley lot, near the Fairgrounds and I-90 at 5905 E. Sprague. No word on what business might replace them at that location.
The new location offers an 18,900 square foot showroom, 2.75 acres of lot / land and shop space allowing Auto Credit Sales to open a service department, which doesn't have currently at the former location. The dealership plans to open for business at the new site by April 1st, and will keep their other locations around the area open as well.
Barton Auto, who formerly occupied the site recently merged with the much larger Lithia Auto Group, and their other auto dealerships remain open, just now under the Lithia name.
