With the national economy seemingly headed toward recovery and a positive business and industry growth outlook in Wyoming, it seemed like the perfect time for Greiner Motors Company to expand its operations, according to Phil Schmidt, president at Greiner.
Already with dealerships in west Casper and Douglas, expanding to Casper's east side by purchasing the former Big Wyoming Buick, GMC, Cadillac dealership appeared to be a valid next step for the company, Schmidt said. Greiner's new Casper location is at 6301 E. Second. "For us, it was a logical expansion," Schmidt said. "The addition of the GM lines would make a nice package for us." Not only did the expansion make sense for the company, but Schmidt said he also believed local and national economic factors were well-aligned to grow the business. "The cost of capital right now is pretty reasonable," he said. "We're seeing a very good environment in interest rates. Consumer credit is on the mend, and I'm of the opinion that car sales will continue to go up." Following the national trend that saw an 11 percent increase in car sales in 2010 over 2009 sales, Greiner Motors Company also has seen an increase in sales. And Schmidt says he expects that trend to continue through 2011and into 2012. "I think Wyoming will follow the national industry," he said. "I remain bullish that the national economy will continue to recover, and the Wyoming economy continues to look bright." Schmidt is not the only business owner seeing positive signs of recovery from Wyoming's economy has not downturn economy in 2008 and 2009.

Meanwhile, the business’ Casper location will remain open. The dealership, which is an outlet for Ford, Chysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep vehicles, expanded from Casper and opened its Douglas branch in 2007. Greiner President and CEO Phil Schmidt cited the downturn in coal and oil, as well as a larger national struggle for smaller dealerships to remain viable, as reasons for the company shutting its doors April 30. Schmidt said it was a difficult decision but “a perfect storm� of events that led him ultimately to decide to shut down the store. Likewise, he said smaller dealerships across the country are experiencing the same financial hardships as the Douglas branch. He said operating costs for dealerships have increased over the years, placing a larger burden on smaller dealerships to keep up with training and other services.
Those dealerships are losing the fight to larger dealerships across the country, he said, and it’s been happening for a while. Indeed, the number of franchised car dealerships in the country has decreased steadily over the last several decades. In 1950, there were as many as 47,000 franchised dealerships, but by 2014, that number dropped 65 percent to just 16,500 dealerships, according to the National Automobile Dealers Association. National reports and experts indicate that many of these closures have come from small dealerships in fairly insulated markets. They reason that small, local, rural dealerships have been increasingly unable to support the types of training and services that manufacturers demand from their outlets as technology has advanced. In Wyoming, dealerships employed some 5,600 people in 2014, according to national data, with an average 43 employees for each business. Schmidt said the Douglas shop employs some 20 people. He said some, but not all, of those employees will still have jobs at the Casper location. The announcement is just one of the latest signs of the local economy and small businesses struggling to remain afloat under the pressures of recent layoffs and production downturns in the energy sector. Recently, the Speedway gas station and the Juanita’s Mexican Grill, both located at 1728 E. Richards Street, also closed down.
