This remains our mission today, with our 5 retail locations, 4 travelling shoemobiles, and booming mail order business.

To say the Zimmerman family has roots in the St. Charles community would be an understatement. This year, Zimmerman Ford will celebrate 80 years as a dealership.

Jack and Michael Zimmerman, sons of founder Bill Zimmerman, have run the business for the past 15 years.

Along with its longevity as a dealership, what makes Zimmerman Ford  stand out from other dealerships in the area is the longevity of its employees. The woman who handles our tax and title work has been with us for 44 years. Her father was Bill Zimmerman's body shop manager. Another salesman who recently retired was with the business 42 years. He was selling cars to the great-grandchildren of his customers in the 1960s.

These figures become an incredible advantage to return customers. Whether they are looking for a new car, or having their vehicles serviced, it's great to have them come back and talk to the same sales people or service personnel.

We invite you to visit our recently renovated new car showroom. We have all the latest models on display in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere for your review. Our sales people are ready to show you the features and benefits of any vehicle that you may be interested in and work with you without unnecessary pressure. We also invite you to look at our window showcase and see the Ford GT that is on display.

The Arcada Theater was built in 1926 by local millionaire and Chicago Tribune cartoonist Lester J. Norris. The new theater was a $500,000 example of the Norris family's confidence in the future of St. Charles . With only 5,000 residents in town, 1,009 seats were installed. A popular stop on the Vaudeville circuit, the Arcada was described in the St. Charles Chronicle in this quote: "There may be larger theatres in Chicago , but for beauty of auditorium and artistic stage setting, there are none superior to the Arcada of St. Charles."

Upon the Arcada's grand opening, the public came in such large numbers that hundreds were unable to gain entrance. Chicagoans arrived by a special railway car to see the featured film "The Last Frontier" and the Vaudeville acts of Fibber McGee and Molly Lor. Patrons also heard a recital on the famous $25,000 Marr and Colton silver and red organ, which was adorned with flamingo carvings.
