Moomaw’s, founded in 1912 by Simon P. Moomaw, is one of Ohio’s pioneer automobile dealerships and has been in continuous operation. Known originally as S.P.Moomaw and Son, the firm sold Willy’s Overland products until 1933 when a contract with Chevrolet was signed by Simon’s son, Howard Moomaw. In 1960, Howard Moomaw, Jr became the dealer and ran the store until 1993 when son Randy assumed control. The Chevrolet contract was not renewed in October 2010 as Moomaw Chevrolet was one of thousands of dealers across the country that received a non-renewal letter from GM and Chrysler as part of the bankruptcy and government bail out proceedings. The name was simply changed to Moomaw Automotive and there has been no interruption in service as Moomaw’s continues their quality vehicle repair and sale of preowned vehicles.

Moomaw’s is a four generation family run business that has succeeded on the basis of fair and friendly dealing, honest service, and an old fashioned personal touch that remains to this day. Randy says “we see ourselves as a throwback, a throwback to the good ole’ days when a handshake and smile meant everything, to the days when you looked people square in the eye and your word was good. We’re proud of our heritage and small town style and we think there is no better place for your auto needs”. Please click on the testamonial link to see what people are saying about Moomaw’s.
