In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton speaks with Stafford and Shelly Smith. They are the owners of the Smith Group in Idaho Falls, which includes Smith Chevrolet, Smith Honda and Smith RV.
The dealership has run in the family for decades as the Smiths have been selling vehicles for 100 years. Stafford is still involved but their son, Cannon Smith, does most of the day-to-day operations.
The Smiths talk with Nate about how the industry has changed over the years, their keys to success and what they believe the future holds.
