South Lubbock is the new home to an auto dealership with a familiar name.
The ceremonial ribbon was cut at Gene Messer Chevrolet at 1302 South Loop 289. Construction of the facility was completed in plenty of time to receive the first of 13 new Chevrolet models that will be released this year.
General Manager Pete Ruiz said, "Hopefully as early as late April or May we will have the new Silverado pickup, and then our new products that will follow after that will be the Stingray Corvette and the Tahoe. The Suburban will have new models. 2014 models will be new redesigned models," Ruiz said.
Gene Messer Chevrolet has 350 new and used vehicles already at the new location.
