At last years Economic Business Summit, which was held at The Overlook at Geer Tree Farm, a perspective business that wanted to come to Griswold was in attendance to get an idea of the current business climate as well as speaking on his own business.

According to JR Flagg, the company’s founder, he had an unbelievable response when the company attended the Mohegan RV show last year.  Flagg also said that this new dealership will connect the Flagg RV “Triangle” with their other locations.  Flagg says that lots of his customers already come here and are from here which made it palatable to build in Griswold.  Flagg found a piece of land on Rte 164 next to Petromax

Then… COVID-19

The pandemic hit and all bets were off that and.Flagg RV pulled out of their deal on the land and decided that they weren’t going to build and expand into Griswold.

Until the beginning of June 2020.  JR Flagg has rekindled the idea of opening in Griswold.  “We can’t keep them in stock,” says JR Flagg.  “RV sales are through the roof” according to the owner,

The idea last year was to have Flagg RV be open by now as a service center and then filter in sales as clientele grew.  That didn’t happen.  However, one thing did happen that didn’t happen last time.  JR Flagg has put a deposit on the land and the process will now begin.

This will be the third dealership for the Flagg family.  Their others are in Uxbridge and West Boylston Massachusetts.
