Preliminary data from the Q2 2020 OPE Business Dealer Survey finds that dealerships largely came out of the April-June quarter either “above plan” or “on plan” based on their expected performance.
With OPE dealership owners and operators from nearly 40 states participating, preliminary data shows that 49 percent reported that their business performance was “above plan” for Q2. Another 36 percent said they were “on plan,” meaning that 85% of the dealers surveyed were either on or above their target business plan.
Top wholegood brands representing by the participating dealers include Husqvarna, Echo, Stihl, Billy Goat, Toro, Honda Power Equipment, AriensCo, Snapper and Cub Cadet.
A total of 86 percent of the preliminary respondents own single locations.
