Ada's Cole Motor Sales will close Sept. 20

Four-generation Ford dealership supplied area with vehicles for over 100 years

FROM ADA ICON - Cole Motor Sales, a four-generation-owned Ada family business will close on Sept. 20, according to Cathy Cole.

Selling Fords, at 120 E. Buckeye, Ada, the company began assembling Model Ts in the 1910s that were shipped in parts to Ada on the railroad.

Ada became a “Ford” town and the large number of Ford vehicles in Ada today reflect the Cole Motor presence.

“We opened and we are happy to be back!” was Chrissy Lugibihl’s greeting to the Icon shortly after 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

Lugibihl is manager of Bluffton’s iconic Et Cetera Shop, which closed for one week, giving its loyal customers the jitters during that period. While closed, the merchandise moved from 111 S. Main St. to the greatly-expanded location at 327 N. Main St.

A Sunday afternoon “sneak peek” raised $1,200 for Mennonite Central Committee, as shoppers were able to purchase $25 tickets for that event.
