One of the largest family names in car sales in the Atlantic City area has sold their dealerships.

According to a press release, the Ciocca Dealerships group has acquired Kerbeck Chevrolet Buick GMC of Atlantic City, Kerbeck Cadillac of Atlantic City, and Kerbeck Corvette. All three dealerships are located on Albany Avenue in Atlantic City, across the street from Sandcastle Stadium and Bader Field.

If the Ciocca name sounds familiar, they purchased Kerbeck's Subaru dealership on the Black Horse Pike at Route 9 in Pleasantville just a few months ago.

In a statement, Ciocca CEO and founder Gregg Ciocca said, "We are very pleased to announce the company's expansion into the Atlantic City market. Everyone is excited to become involved in the community and meet our new customers and team members in Atlantic City. The energy and growth in this area made this an exciting opportunity to add to our family of dealerships."
