IDAHO FALLS, Idaho - October 8, 2019 - ( Newswire.com )

CHESTER'S GRAND TETON HARLEY-DAVIDSON  consists of a main Harley-Davidson dealer location in Idaho Falls, Idaho with secondary retail locations in Jackson, WY and Pocatello, ID under the names JACKSON HOLE HARLEY-DAVIDSON and EAGLE ROCK HARLEY-DAVIDSON respectively.

Jerry Szopinski, Powersports Listings Mergers & Acquisitions (PLMA) - President of Sales & Networking, established a sturdy relationship with the ownership group of the Chester's H-D dealerships beginning in 2009, and all the while consulting with them around buy-sell opportunities that might be interesting to this multi-unit Harley-Davidson dealership enterprise.

The owners contracted with PLMA when it came time to move from buying mode to selling mode after 15+ years of successful ownership at the Grand Teton Harley-Davidson locations in Idaho Falls, ID; Jackson, WY; and Pocatello, ID.

​Through many weeks of confidential marketing, the PLMA team identified Greg and Mary Woodward of Salt Lake City, Utah as ideal candidates for the unique acquisition of the three store package. Greg Woodward has a long track record of success as a business operator and has built and scaled several businesses in the private equity investment arena. He has served in several executive positions with private and venture equity fund operators and currently manages his own family investment fund.

Greg and Mary have been long time Harley-Davidson enthusiasts in addition to a long list of "awesome" hobbies such as racing Porsches, building show quality cars, and collecting historical motorcycles.

The Woodward family closed on the purchase of the assets of the dealerships and took over operations as of Oct. 1, 2019. The Woodwards will retain the names Grand Teton Harley-Davidson, Jackson Hole Harley-Davidson, and Eagle Rock Harley-Davidson with the retirement of the "Chester's" header. With the stores' proximity to some of the best motorcycle roads in the world, the Woodwards plan to establish the dealerships as "must stop" destinations for motorcyclists and tourists. Greg Woodward commented at the closing of the sale that "The PLMA team clearly has a command of the Harley-Davidson dealership sale and acquisition process."
