Our Story: Family Owned, Neighbor Driven

C & M Ford Sales is a trusted new and used car dealership in Hallock, Minnesota serving the Red River Valley and beyond. We offer a vast selection, award winning customer service, competitive prices, free service loaners, home delivery and a friendly and well-trained staff. We are family owned, neighbor driven since 1966.

History: Where did we come from?

C&M Ford Sales opened its doors in 1966 in downtown Hallock when Monte Blomquist (the M) and Cecil Johnson (the C) purchased the Hallock Auto Sales Dealership from Woody and Dennis Woodard. Like the Hallock Auto Sales Dealership, C & M Ford sold Ford and Mercury cars and trucks and Case Implements. In 1971 Monte purchased Cecil's share of the business and the C of C&M then stood for Cindy, Monte's wife.

In 1988, when Monte died suddenly his son Paul returned from Minneapolis fresh out of college to take over the reigns of the car dealership and son Jon took over the implement side of the business -- officially splitting the business in two. In 1997 C & M moved to its current location on Highway 75 on the north side of Hallock, the site of the former implement business, and has continued to grow in sales, staff and facility ever since.

Family owned neighbor driven

Our motto -- family owned neighbor driven -- acknowledges that C&M is family owned since 1966. We provide hometown personal service that is not available at corporate or most other dealerships. The C&M family not only includes the family who owns the dealership, but its staff and customers. To us, family means all three. Neighbor driven speaks to the relationship we have with our customers. Customers are our story.

Our employees. C&M values engaged and empowered employees.  We espouse a culture of flexibility at the dealership where employees know how to solve problems and are cross-trained, allowing them to step into a variety of roles when needed. The turnover rate for our staff is low -- employees stick around for a long time. For example, one of our current employees has worked for C&M for 45 years.  Our employees are also multi-generational. For example, our staff includes a granddaughter/grandfather pair and a son-in-law/father-in-law pair.

Our customers. We value our unique customers and they value us. Many customers have developed special connections with and trust specific C&M technicians. It's common for them to request that those technicians work on their vehicles. They appreciate C&M's use of Ford parts, a practice that not all Ford dealers are committed to. Customers also bring treats to the dealership that range from Buffalo steak bits to cinnamon rolls. They travel long distances for service work and to purchase their vehicles. One customer told us that he drove by four dealerships to get to ours. We have converted many non-Ford customers into loyal Ford fans. Like our multi-generational employees, it's common for younger generations to follow their parents and grandparents in their commitment to C&M Ford. We have many life long customers.
