In 1980, Jim Butler bought his first dealership in St. Louis, MO. It was a stand-alone Chevrolet dealership with a full service body shop that worked on all makes and models. Throughout the ’80s, Jim grew his business in the Crestwood area. Through the growth of the Jim Butler name, two things were paramount: Customer Service and an Exceptional Staff on all fronts- sales, service and parts.
Jim was also a big part of developing the Saturn brand “a new kind of Car Company” back in the late 1980′s, and during the 1990′s expanded his dealership network with two Saturn Dealerships in the St. Louis area, and eventually two more out of the St. Louis area (Cape Girardeau, MO and Carbondale, IL).Through the 1990’s and early 2000’s the growth of the Jim Butler name and success of the dealerships allowed Jim Butler to expand the Chevrolet brand.
In 2007, Chevrolet moved from 9900 Watson Rd. in Crestwood to 759 Gravois Bluffs Blvd. in Fenton while increasing his staff, selling more cars, and servicing more vehicles of all types. Further along, in 2009 the Jim Butler Auto Group purchased the KIA and Mitsubishi dealership located on Manchester Rd. in Ellisville. In 2010, the KIA dealership moved to Chesterfield Valley and the Mitsubishi dealership moved to South County off of 11157 Lindbergh Business Court.
