We are constantly asked, "Are dealerships open on Sundays?" While we can't speak for all Cleveland Toyota dealers, we are proud to say that for Motorcars Toyota, the answer is, "Yes."
If you've asked the first question, then chances are that you've also asked this one. There's been a ban on car sales for quite a while; many people refer to them as Blue Laws. These laws were initially intended to honor religious standards, so specific activities were banned on Sunday, as it is considered a holy day for many.
It depends on which dealership you're talking to. We are sure that there are plenty of used car dealerships in Ohio that would love to be open on Sundays; however, we cannot speak for all of them. One reason car dealerships might be opposed to being open on Sundays could be for employees. Every dealership appreciates the dedication brought forth by its employees and honoring the Sunday rule provides their team with a much-needed day off – who can argue that? Work-life balance is something that not many Americans have the pleasure of enjoying, so an extra day for the family is a nice thing to offer as a "perk."
Also, dealerships aren't racking up added expenses for being open an extra day. Showrooms are often extensive and well-lit, which can be draining for an energy bill, not to mention all the other costs that go into running a dealership. All in all, it seems that it might be more beneficial for some locations to remain closed on Sunday, rather than open.
One might expect that online inquiries might be higher on Sundays since most people expect the dealership to be closed. Drivers are more likely to be shopping virtual showrooms versus real ones. Luckily, Motorcars Toyota has made it easy for drivers to check out affordable used cars, Toyota accessories, and Toyota parts online.
Since we are in a state that allows sales on Sundays, we invite you to come on by and test drive the new Toyota Highlander Hybrid! We're happy to assist you.
