Curly Olney’s is Case IH dealership
■ Editor’s note: This is one in a series of features that will spotlight businesses in Imperial. The community has a thriving business community, and all residents may not realize the extent of services and products local businesses provide. This feature will be a regular offering throughout the year and beyond, and will include those businesses with a commercial address located outside of the home.

Located at the corner of Grant Street and Highway 6 on the north side of Imperial, Curly Olney’s Inc. does more than sell Case IH machinery, although there are many examples of that on the lot.
Manager Chad Fisher said the business sells Case IH implements, Bush Hog mowers and parts, and Trimble GPS guidance systems for tractors, with a number of smaller lines also available.
Curly Olney’s also services semis and trucks and all equipment that it sells.
Owned by three McCook residents, Curly Olney’s Inc. was formed in 1968 in McCook. The only branch was opened in Imperial in 1984, on East Highway 6. It was moved to its present location in August, 2001.
Fisher said Curly Olney’s Inc. owns its own RTK (Real Time Kinectics) network of 17 bay stations in a five-county area to send out GPS signals.
