More good news on the auto
front: A local dealership is planning to expand and add jobs.
Construction is well
underway on three of the five Thayer Family dealerships in Bowling Green. Thayer
Chevrolet is currently being remodeled, and their Toyota and Honda locations
are getting entirely new facilities.
Not only are they trying
to create a more customer-friendly environment for their community, but they
say they'll be creating at least 15 more jobs.
"We'll have about five new
jobs at each location, both in sales and service," explained Rachael Thayer. "At
our Honda location, we're doubling our service capacity, so that will add a
bunch of jobs there."
The projects are expected
to be done mid-summer, depending on weather.
Thayer said each of the 15
jobs will be entirely new, and they won't be hiring from within.
"All the jobs will be from
outside, and we will need to fill those positions, so that process has started,"
The new facilities will
also include Wi-Fi and charging stations for electric vehicles. Thayer said
everyone is excited and the community has been incredibly supportive.
