C & B Operations, LLC, a family-owned business that operates 37 John Deere dealerships in South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Wyoming, Iowa, and Idaho, announced the acquisition of Okoboji Indian and Okoboji Motorsports in Spirit Lake, Iowa, through a new division called C & B Powersports, LLC. The change is effective immediately.
Okoboji Motorsports offered Polaris off-road vehicles, Polaris snowmobiles, Slingshot and Genuine Scooters. Okoboji Indian exclusively offers the entire lineup of Indian Motorcycles. C & B Powersports will continue to offer all these products and will be adding John Deere compact tractors, lawn mowers, ZTrak mowers (zero-turn mowers), Gator UTVs, compact tractors and utility tractors.
With the acquisition, Okoboji Motorsports and Okoboji Indian will be undergoing a name change in 2022 to be C & B Powersports.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Polaris and Indian as we continue to bring brands with the highest levels of quality to our customers. We also believe that bringing John Deere Turf and Utility products to the Spirit Lake area demonstrates C & B’s commitment to that strategy. Please come and check out the store,” said Peter Burwell, C & B chairman and CEO.
C & B started in 1988 with one store and is based in Gettysburg, South Dakota.
