PENTICTON/OKANAGAN (SYLIX) TERRITORY, BC, May 2, 2017 /CNW/ - Construction has begun on the new Nissan Penticton auto dealership set to open December 2017 as the first business lease of the Penticton Indian Band's Satikw Crossing development properties (Channel Lands).
"I look forward to bringing the Nissan lineup of exciting vehicles to residents of the south Okanagan, as well as community spirit and involvement in various ways," said John Kot, owner of Nissan Penticton.
Kot recently received the BC Community Spirit Award from the New Car Dealers Association for showing tremendous community excellence over many years.
The new Penticton Nissan dealership will boast a state-of-the-art 17,000-square-foot facility with Nissan's New Image program. This new image program sets out Nissan's new exterior and interior design of its facilities. The new concept is intended to deliver an exceptional retail experience at every touchpoint in the dealership and aims to enable flexible customer journeys for every customer.
More than 30 full-time jobs are expected to be created at the dealership when it opens, as well as 35 jobs during construction. Infrastructure work is also underway by the Penticton Indian Band to service the site and the Satikw Crossing development properties.
Satikw Crossing includes more than 140 acres (60 hectares) of prime development land adjacent to Highway 97 and the Penticton Regional Airport for residential, commercial, industrial and recreational uses.
"The Nissan brand is a welcome addition and demonstrates the potential of Satikw Crossing to bring high-profile businesses and opportunities to Penticton. Having more options to purchase a vehicle locally will benefit consumers and help keep money and people in our region," said Penticton Mayor Andrew Jakubeit.
