I just thought I would give you the latest on the YAG growth and progress.
You all may know but you may not know that we are currently under construction on the new Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram store in Morgan. It will be a great addition to the YAG and a great addition to Morgan. Hopefully with a little luck it should be completed by the end of the year but more than likely the Spring of 2015.
This will be a wonderful thing to serve our customers better and of course be a great thing for all the associates that work at the Ford store and the CJDR store in Morgan.
We are currently finalizing all the permits, processes and approvals to build a new Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram store in Burley. This will be a welcomed addition and expansion for our operations in Burley. I think it is a big deal for the community there as well. We should be breaking ground in the next 60 days and hopefully be complete by the middle of 2015. This new facility will be a wonderful benefit and serve our customers and the community better.
We have been moving into the new Parts warehouse at the Freeport center in Clearfield. The new warehouse space will provide an additional 44,000 sq ft of storage and with the Chevrolet stores current space of 14,000+ sq ft this should give us close to 60,000 sq ft of parts warehouse for all of our manufactures and one of the biggest parts wholesale operations in Utah. This is a huge endeavor for the YAG and will compliment all of the stores and it will better serve all of our customers.
We purchased the 4 storage sheds in Layton just down the street from the Chevrolet store that have 80 storage units. This is a great addition to our operations not only for additional parts storage but for the future expansion of the KIA store down the road.
We are currently looking for property in Logan to build a new Honda store. We will be separating the Toyota and Honda stores in the next couple of years. We also are starting the preliminary planning for a remodel for the current Toyota image for that building.
I think these and many other projects we are working on will be great things for the YAG group. Better serving all the associates of YAG, the communities we are in and of course the Customer and the manufactures we represent. We want to always be on the cutting edge and be moving and growing. I think if you sit still you get stale…..the YAG is on the move and hopefully you feel proud to be a part of it.
Thanks for all you do,
