There are very few car dealerships inside the beltline in Raleigh these days. Almost all dealerships on Capital Boulevard have moved further and further north as more people are moving to Wake Forest and the north part of Raleigh. We have learned that Bobby Murray Chevrolet is going to move their dealership to the spot across from the Ford dealership north of 540.
If you are driving north on Capital Boulevard or US-1 you will see a driving range on the right side of the road. Just after the driving range, there will be a Chevrolet dealership in the very near future. As of today, there is a gas station in this location but that will be removed when the Bobby Murray Chevrolet dealership clears out the land.
With Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Honda, Nissan and Toyota all vying for sales in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill area it is important to remember the importance of location. Car buyers are willing to travel a few extra miles to know they will be in a safer area with much more parking. While dealerships are popping up all over the place near Southpoint in Durham the other popular location is north of Triangle Town Center Mall in North Raleigh.
This address is getting very close to Wake Forest as the next major intersection will allow you to go into Wake Forest the back way. It will be interesting to see if this location is more successful for one of the most popular Chevrolet dealerships in the entire state of North Carolina.
