The building had been in the works for a couple of years, while the dealership operated out of its old location. According to the staff, the new building is something to behold.

“It’s amazing. The place is a masterpiece; it’s a piece of art. It’s exciting to come to work every day,” said Tanner Caouette, managing partner and general manager of the dealership.
