  • Southern Oregon Subaru has submitted plans to enclose its service entrance to the city.
    The Biddle Road auto dealership, which recently completed a $600,000 overhaul to its 19-year-old facility, said the latest project will cost about $150,000.
    "This will be helpful to our customers, especially during the cold, wet part of the year," said Gregg Sorensen, owner and general manager of the dealership. "There's a canopy there now, but we're going to enclose it and extend it. We should be able to put eight cars in there at one time."
    The recent remodel brought the dealership in line with present Subaru showroom standards.
    Sportsman's Warehouse, which battled back from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009, is now making the jump to public ownership.
    The Midvale, Utah-based firm operates 49 stores in 18 states, including a 46,000-square-foot operation in Medford's Delta Center, which opened in 2007.
    The outdoor chain, founded in 1986, grew to nearly 70 stores under founder Stu Utgaard before recessionary pressures led to selling off 15 stores, shuttering 23 more and seeking court protection.
    Sportsman's is offering more than 8.3 million shares and private equity firm Seidler Equity Partners III is offering an additional 4.2 million shares. The shares, which will be traded on the Nasdaq under SPWH, will be priced between $11 and $13.
