Sayville Ford, Long Island’s Ford Giant, is set to unveil its newly renovated showroom and business facility during its grand re-opening weekend event Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 8, 2016, Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Located off of Sunrise Highway in Sayville, New York, the multi-generational dealership will mark the occasion with a free, family-friendly celebration complete with giveaways, raffles, food and petting zoo. The family owned and operated dealership will celebrate its 60th year in 2017, and this event defines the beginning of a new era.
In 2015, Sayville Ford underwent major renovations, and after more than a year of construction, Sayville Ford is bigger and better than ever. The new facility houses a large, showroom, second floor conference and office area, drive-in service lanes, on-site car wash and a state-of-the-art customer lounge — all in an effort to provide customers the ultimate dealership experience.
Three generations later and three buildings later, Sayville Ford, has been part of the local community since 1957 when Neil Spare, Sr. opened Sayville Ford at 102 Main Street, Sayville (where present day Walgreens is located), selling both Fords and gasoline from street side pumps. In 1966, after college and serving in the US Navy as a submariner, his son, Neil Spare, Jr. joined the business. As the dealership grew, Spare, Jr. relocated the dealership and in 1975, a new facility opened at its present location. In 2008, Neil Spare Jr.’s daughter, Melanie Spare-Oswalt, joined the business after an 18-year career in the insurance industry and became the third generation Spare to operate the business.
Sayville Ford proudly serves as a local institution, providing employment to more than 90 people, supporting local events including Drive 4 UR School; Sayville Ford Annual Mustang Show with proceeds going to the Make A Wish Foundation, Long Island Cares and more.
Sayville Ford is located at 5686 Sunrise Highway, Sayville, NY.
