The Sommer’s Subaru groundbreaking event happened on May 9th and included Mequon Mayor Kurt Gielow and representatives from the City of Mequon, General Motors and Subaru. Wally and Don Sommer, owners of Sommer’s Subaru have been selling and servicing Subarus for over ten years, and have grown to become the largest Subaru dealer in Wisconsin, along with the second largest in the Midwest for 2010.
