STEPHENVILLE (August 1, 2019) – Bruner Motors, Inc is proud to announce the celebration of fifty years of operation in Stephenville. Dwain Bruner, current CEO of Bruner Motors, purchased the Chevrolet franchise from Reecie Jones (Jones Chevrolet) on July 1, 1969, and opened Dwain Bruner Chevrolet Co. The following year, the dealership moved from a downtown location to its current location on the South Loop. Additional makes were added over the years, including the full Chrysler line-up and a merger with Cross Timbers Autoplex that added the full GM lineup to the existing Chevrolet franchise in 1990.
Bruner Motors will celebrate their 50th Anniversary with an Anniversary Celebration on Thursday, August 8, at 5 p.m. The event will start with a mixer in partnership with the Stephenville Chamber of Commerce and conclude with a celebration event from 6 to 8:30 p.m. that is open to the public. Festivities will include games, live music by Courtney Patton, Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey, and a Mechanical bull, as well as other food and giveaways.
“We’re excited to celebrate with our community,” said Greg Bruner, President of Bruner Motors, “we owe an enormous debt of gratitude to our community in Stephenville, DeLeon, Hamilton, Glen Rose, Dublin, Hico and beyond.”
Dwain and Carolyn Bruner were honored by the City of Stephenville City Council on July 30 with a proclamation celebrating the 50th Anniversary, said Greg Bruner. The events the evening of August 8 are open to the entire community, and Bruner is hopeful the community will stop by during the celebration.
