Toyota of Greer on Thursday announced the completion of a $1.25 million facelift of its dealership at 13770 E. Wade Hampton Blvd. in Spartanburg County.
Improvements include an expanded service area, new customer lounge, a larger lot and a new VIP entrance.
Toyota of Greer officials said the project, which is the first major renovation of the dealership since it opened in 2003, took about nine months to complete.
“This helps us meet the growing needs of our team as well as creates a greater customer experience,” said Bob Hogan, an owner of Toyota of Greer. “Everything about this was designed to enhance the car shopping experience and make it like nothing else in the region.”
The lounge features new seating, massage chairs, flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet service and complimentary coffee and snacks.
“Investment in the city is always a great thing,” said Greer Mayor Rick Danner in a statement. “But to have it from a partner like Toyota of Greer is significant. They have supported a lot of community initiatives over the years, and we are honored to have them doubling down on Greer.”
Craig Pollock, vice president of Southeast Toyota Distributors, which supplies 176 dealers throughout the Southeast, presented a commemorative katana to the dealership.
A remake of the traditional weapon carried by Samurai warriors, the sword is given to dealers associated with the Japanese automaker that show commitment to continuous improvement.
