The Perry Automotive Group is building a new location for its Nissan dealership at the corner of Providence Road and Interstate 70 and a new repair center next door at Providence and Nebraska Avenue.
Justin Perry, president of the automotive group, said the dealership plans to move its operation next spring.
“Many Nissan dealerships across the country are participating in a design initiative that takes an original approach to serving customers,” Perry said in a news release. “We wanted to be a part of this unique strategy.”
The design integrates the sales, service and parts divisions, and the windows and open floor space allow customers to see the service and the parts divisions from the showroom.
“With this facility, customers can expect an inviting and comfortable environment, less time to receive estimates and a decrease in repair time, thereby creating an exceptional customer experience,” Perry said.
Perry Nissan will occupy four acres at Providence Road and I-70. Perry Chevrolet will take over the current Nissan facility, which will add 23,000 square feet to its operation. Perry Automotive currently employs 147 individuals.
Earlier this month the company began construction on its Collision Center, which will be in a 15,000-square-foot building. The operation will begin hiring 15 employees in October and expects to open this fall. The complex will also have a 9,500-square-foot paint facility.

CBT reported in May that Perry Nissan would likely move to the Providence Road location.
Brian Spillars, who has been the service manager for Perry Nissan for the past 10 years, said the Collision Center’s high-efficiency spray booths will reduce the curing time by 35 percent, that its computerized measuring systems will be faster and that its design will allow for faster repairs and inspections, meaning customers spend less time without their vehicles. •
