Mobile, AL, May 9, 2008: It’s a new day for Springhill Toyota from the ground up. Work has been completed taking Springhill Toyota to state-of-the-art for sales and service. General Manager Tal Vickers explained, “The design of the dealership is what Toyota terms Image II, and every aspect of over 60,000 square feet has been built to exceed customer’s and employee’s needs.” Friday, May 9th, at 1:00PM, Grand Opening festivities commence with a ribbon-cutting by Ken Czubay of Southeast Toyota; Mobile Mayor Samuel Jones and the City Council have also been invited. “This is the culmination of big dreams and hard work,” added Vickers, “Springhill Toyota is ready for tomorrow today, and we invite all our friends to share in this time.”
The most striking aspect of Springhill Toyota is the exterior illuminated façade, but that is only the beginning, according to Vickers, “The showroom features a customer’s lounge for comfort and efficiency – there is Internet access and Wi-Fi throughout, gourmet coffee bar, flat screen TVs.” Springhill Toyota also has the one of the only dedicated Toyota Truck Centers in the Southeast. “We are ahead of the industry trend, with truck sales totally separate from new cars,” Vickers said. The award-winning Service Department has expanded to 30 service bays and more convenient drive-up access for customers; the Parts Department is also larger. Vickers anticipates in-stock vehicle inventory reaching over 500 new and pre-owned vehicles.
Springhill Toyota has been in Mobile since 1972 and has operated in the same location since 1993. “We are a family-owned business – a rarity in a time of publicly-held corporate automotive operations – and dedicated to treating customers as family,” explains Vickers. With 120 full-time employees, Vickers points out, “It’s because of loyal customers and great employees that the Springhill Toyota tradition continues better than ever.”
