FLINT TOWNSHIP (WJRT) (5/17/2019) - One of Genesee County's largest auto retailers has a new name.

The Patsy Lou Automotive Group officially was renamed on Friday to Shea Automotive Group. The change is effective immediately, according to a post on the business' Facebook page.

The new Shea Automotive Group is taking over the Patsy Lou Chevrolet and Patsy Lou Buick GMC dealerships on Corunna Road in Flint Township.
