Torn-Down Tuesday: Williamsville’s Glen Campbell Chevrolet

It’s been 25 years this fall since the Walker Center opened on Main Street just east of I-290.

Glen Campbell Chevrolet opened on the same spot 70 years ago in 1949. It was billed as Western New York’s most up-to-date dealership with 12,000 feet of space in the showroom, 215 feet of frontage on Main Street and a service garage large enough to work on two cars simultaneously “with the most modern machinery available.”

Campbell opened his first dealership in 1946 a few miles up the road in the former Frank Chevrolet showroom at 5886 Main St.

When the dealership moved again from Main Street to Transit Road, former Buffalo Sabre Fred Stanfield opened his office furniture store at the Main Street location.
