The car dealer location shuffle continues along Straits Turnpike in Watertown, and this time, Waterbury is the city that gained a dealership. I was driving along 84 this morning, and I noticed that they've put a huge new billboard alongside the new location on Schraffts Drive, proclaiming that BMW of Waterbury is open for business. I went and confirmed the news. Here's a pic that Mrs. Large snapped from the passenger seat of the new location, and you can see the billboard that I am talking about -

BMW of Waterbury is located at 133 Schraffts Drive, it's located right next to the Masjid Al Mustafa Mosque on a new piece of land that was cleared out. The Hoffman Auto Group owned dealership is still very much under construction, the sign isn't even up yet. Here's another photo that I snapped as I was pulling through the lot of the front of the building

There are plenty of BMW's in the spacious parking lot, and I did catch the attention of a salesperson, who was very cool when I told him that I was just visiting, and gathering a couple of pics for this article. The new location for the BMW dealership is a direct blow to Blasius Chevrolet-Cadillac's monopoly in the area, it's right around the corner from Blasius's dealership on Scott Road.

I took a ride out to the old BMW of Watertown on Straits Turnpike, just to make sure that the old place is shut down, and, as you can see, it's cleared out, and a lot of the signage has been stripped off the building already. It will be interesting to see who will move into this building, and, when neighbor Premier Subaru moves out of their current location into their new location, currently under construction, down the street.
