GROWTH OF THE COMPANY
Schumacher Buick GMC of West Palm Beach opened its doors in 1971 on Okeechobee Boulevard. Richard Schumacher brought his family to the Palm Beaches after a highly successful career as a Ford dealer in the Chicago area. He immediately embraced the community and began a philosophy of service to customers that would carry on for generations. It was not long after opening Schumacher Buick GMC of West Palm Beach, that Richard and his team became the number one Buick dealer in the State of Florida.
After his graduation from Southern Methodist University, his son Chuck returned to Florida to open and operate the highly successful, Bay view Buick in Port Richey, Florida for his family. He soon returned to run the Palm Beach store and quickly led the sales team to become the number one Buick dealer in the nation. With keen business acumen and an unrivaled reputation, Chuck continued to build the business adding Oldsmobile in 1989.
Chuck carried on the family tradition of ownership in 1997 when he purchased the current Northlake Boulevard location, offering Mitsubishi, Volkswagen, Pontiac and GMC Truck. He added Buick and Oldsmobile to that dealership shortly after.
Chuck became the Saab Dealer for Palm Beach County in 1999 and then added Pontiac and Volkswagen at the West Palm location in 1999 and 2000 respectively. Infiniti and HUMMER became a part of the offerings in 2001 and Mitsubishi joined the West Palm Beach location in 2007. Chevrolet was added to the line up at the Northlake location most recently.Check out our other Schumacher brands in West Palm Beach, FL:
