June 2021: Service Sales Numbers Remain Positive, but Wholegoods and Parts Drag

Although service sales remained positive in all regions in June, drops in wholegoods and parts sales in nearly every region took their toll in overall sales numbers for OPE dealerships across the U.S. as well as Canada. Among U.S. dealerships, only those in the South region managed to not show overall negative sales numbers in June 2021 compared to June 2020.

  • Wholegoods sales were down 6 percent (down 29 percent in Canada);
  • Parts sales were down 9 percent (down 14 percent in Canada); and
  • Service sales were up 28 percent (up 32 percent in Canada).
