History of our Dealership
It all started in 1958 when John Jennings’ father was the General Manager of a Chevrolet dealership on the south side. He had an application in to be a dealer, and when the Chevrolet Store in Glenview became available, Jim Sr. was offered the opportunity, which he eagerly accepted. He commuted daily from the south side of Chicago. Jennings Chevrolet moved into it's current location in 1967.
John has worked in this business his whole life; from washing cars and cleaning parts shelves, to salesman and now owner. He started full time in 1983. In early 1986 the family acquired the Volkswagen franchise and together the two brothers began their journey. The vision: “To excel in sales and service while maintaining the highest standards of integrity.” Excitement over the acquisition ended prematurely, as later in the year Jim Sr. lost a quick battle with cancer.
Jennings Chevrolet celebrated its 61st year anniversary in February 2019 and Jennings Volkswagen celebrated their 33th year anniversary in March 2014.
