Benton dealership under new ownership


Banners bearing the name of the new ownership cover the signs of the dealership at 5th and Main in Benton, formerly known as Parkway Chrysler.

The dealership at the corner of 5th and Main in Benton has a new name following the recent acquisition by a dealership based in Murray.

Ted Kinsey's Parkway Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram announced on its Facebook page last week the 34-year-old business will now be known as David Taylor Chrysler of Benton, owned by David Taylor Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT of Murray.

"If you've done business with us over the last 34 years, from the bottom of our hearts, we love and appreciate you," the post read in part. "The amount of calls, texts and kind words haven't gone unnoticed. We truly appreciate all of them."

The social media post also states while the name of the dealership has changed, the faces will remain the same.

Within days, the former Parkway Chrysler signs were covered with David Taylor Chrysler banners and the plates on each of the vehicles bore the new ownership name, as well.

Representatives with David Taylor Chrysler declined to respond to multiple requests for comment from The Tribune-Courier.
