Mobile to Sunoco, Chevy expansion, Japan hits GM plant, and real estate deals...

From Business Today:

Your neighborhood Mobil station might be a Sunoco station soon. Pennsylvania-based Lehigh Gas Co. sold at least eight Mobil stations in the past three MOBIL months to Sunoco as part of a corporate strategy. Sunoco has a strong presence in the region and seeks to expand. In all Sunoco is buying 25 stations in the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Albany regions.

Paddock Chevrolet is expanding along Delaware Avenue in Kenmore. The successful dealership - which ranked No. 1 in the nation for selling Chevys in February - is moving its used car operation to the former Jim Doyle Ford site a block away. Neighbors are happy since the Paddock dealership was beginning to spill out into the surrounding neighborhood.

The slowdown in Japan auto operations following the earthquake and tsunami is reaching the GM engine plant in the Town of Tonawanda. GM is placing 59 workers who build the in-line 4- and 5-cylinder BRADLEY engines on temporary layoff because those engines go to a plant in Louisiana that has been idled due to a parts slowdown fro Japan. But not to worry too much - the UAW members on layoff get between 70% and 75% of their pay while at home.
