As part of our daily interactions with dealers, Powersports Business editors have come upon some interesting dealership events related to the Super Bowl. Their one common theme is creating community and giving customers yet another reason to walk into the dealership.
Pre-Game Party. On Saturday, Feb. 2 from noon to 4 p.m. Birds of Prey Motorsports in Caldwell, Idaho, will host a Pre-Game Party. Dubbed the “Best Damn Place to be on the Saturday before the Big Game,” the event will feature food, drinks and football-related coverage on all screens.
