New York Dealer Colton RV Eyes Expansion

Tue Aug 30, 2016

Rising customer demand is prompting Colton RV to consider plans to expand its parking and display area for the inventory at its Orchard Park location.

The RV dealership is working with the Town of Orchard Park on a proposal to turn portions of a former mini-golf and batting cage operation on Southwestern Boulevard into the expanded outdoor vehicle display lot.

Colton took the first step by acquiring the Fun & Games mini-golf and batting cage property from Total Tan Inc., paying $1.55 million, according to documents filed in the Erie County Clerk’s office.
