The 2nd Annual Fall Party at Centennial Park Harley-Davidson in Pataskala, Ohio, set for Sept. 21, will once again build off the dealership’s growth trends.
General manager Jeff Varney took charge of the store in May 2012, and was joined that same month by finance manager Pokey Adams. Two months later Rick Thompson came on board as sales manager. Management then welcomed a MotorClothes staff to give the department a fresh prospective.
In September 2012, Centennial Grove took root. One hundred specimen trees were hauled onto the property and planted. Thanks to Charles Hagy, a prominent local conservationist and farmer, the land was sculpted and pristinely prepared.
As the last trees in the grove were being planted, the staff at Centennial Park set its sights on a major parking lot addition and reconfiguration. On Oct. 2, a massive new parking lot was opened. Since its completion, the company has been putting the lot to good use by hosting the now annual Fall Party at the Park, the Chili Cook-Off and most recently Demo Days.
The last and perhaps most significant upgrade is the construction and completion of an additional showroom.
The space is now the home to motorcycles and local Harley Owners Group meetings. The park is hosting motorcycle information sessions in the space as well. The investments made in the past year at Centennial totaled more than $500,000.
