Bob’s Market Message

August 25, 2014

DAA Northwest and the Spokane dealer community lost one of their own this past week. Mark Chapman, a long time Spokane dealer and a loyal DAA customer and friend, lost his battle with cancer and passed away last Thursday after a long and valiant battle. Mark was a good man. He was quiet, humble and thoughtful. Mark was just 55 years old.  God rest his soul.

As for the market…

It seems as if it is business as usual without any real movement or shift in activity.  Sale percentages are hovering in the low to mid 50% range, and have been there for several weeks.  It feels like we have been in the midst of our “fall adjustment” for several weeks and I don’t see things dropping off as we roll into September and even mid-October.

As always, thanks for supporting DAA Northwest and DAA Seattle. Our single minded goal is to earn your business every week and to never take it for granted.
