This month the Mon Valley Regional Chamber’s spotlight shines on a long-time member Solomon Auto
Group.  Solomon’s is a local family-owned and operated business with over 40 years of experience.
Norman Solomon opened the doors of his own business in 1993. Located in Carmicheals, he started out
selling Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram.  Since then he has expanded, in 2002, Norm opened a second
location on Route 40 in Brownsville. Soon after came Solomon Ford directly across the street.  Now
operating four locations and bringing his daughter, Kelly Garofalo, and son, Todd Solomon aboard,
Solomon's is truly a family-built business.
Within the last few years Solomon’s has continued to grow,  purchasing  Fike Chevrolet in Masontown in
2018 and most recently, Phil Detwiler GMC, Buick in 2020 right before the pandemic hit.  Solomon’s is
currently in the process of constructing a new state-of-the-art facility that will replace their Masontown
branch and be home to three brands, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC.  As Kelly Garofalo states, “These were
perfect purchases for us, being family-run ourselves and being able to purchase family-run stores with
over 40-50 years of experience was a great opportunity for us to help carry on the family tradition.”  The
estimated date of completion for the new facility located at 1777 McClellandtown Road, McClellandtown,
PA, is projected for late spring/early summer.   MVRCC is honored to be a part of the upcoming ribbon-
cutting ceremony and celebration, stay tuned for the official announcement.
Even though the pandemic has been rough on everyone, Solomon’s has been very fortunate to be able to
return almost all of its staff back to work since the shutdown in early 2020.  They have created numerous
jobs for this area and will continue to do so with the expansion and new location.  If you are looking for a
great deal and friendly service from a family-oriented business, make sure to visit Solomon Auto Group.
With four locations selling Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Ford, Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC, there is
definitely something for everyone.  Give them a call at 724-785-8000 or visit them
