One of the Mid-South’s most recognizable automotive dealership brands, The Landers Auto Group, has completed the acquisition of Country Ford in Southaven. The dealership, located at 95 East Goodman Road in Southaven, has been in operation for 25 years and will be rebranded under the new ownership as Landers Ford South.
This location will be the second Landers Ford dealership in the region. The original Landers Ford has operated in Memphis since 1983 and is regularly the number one volume Ford dealership in the Mid-South.

He has additionally served on the Mississippi Economic Council Board of Directors, Chrysler Southwest Business Center Dealer Council, Mississippi Automobile Dealers Association and Chrysler Southwest Business Center Advertising Council.
“I’m proud of what the Landers Auto Group has accomplished for the community in Southaven and Landers Ford South fits perfectly for us as a company and for the Ford customers in the area,” Field said. “The energy and excitement surrounding the Landers Auto Group’s approach to car sales and service will have an immediate impact on the customer experience.”
The Landers Auto Group has a proven record as market leaders in both sales and service. Landers Ford Memphis is a Ford President’s Award winner for customer satisfaction for 17 consecutive years.
