A decades-old Clarksville Toyota dealership will break ground tomorrow on a nearby six-acre site scheduled to open in April, according to dealership personnel.
Antwerpen Toyota Village, which is now the size of "a small gas station," will expand to 63,000 square feet and grow from 56 employees to about 120, said Jacob M. "Jack" Antwerpen, the owner.
"It's going to bring a lot of money into the area," Mr. Antwerpen said. "Currently, we sell 100 cars [a month], and we're seeking to double that."
The facility will be just north of the new intersection of routes 108 and 32, about a half-mile north of the current site, he said. It will cost about $6 million, Mr. Antwerpen said.
The dealership opened in 1966, according to Sharon Hamby, its controller. Mr. Antwerpen bought the dealership in 1988, Ms. Hamby said.
