Five-Star moves used cars

The Five-Star Automotive Group has moved its used cars from its lot at 1090 Riverside Drive to its dealership at 3068 Riverside Drive.

The move will allow the company to use the 1090 Riverside Drive property as a place to consolidate records and store parts and automobiles from its 13 franchises, said Operations Manager Bobby Cramer.

“Business was good,” Cramer said. “But we needed the storage down there. We will keep our finance office there.”

In March 2009, the company turned the 1090 Riverside Drive lot into a large used-car facility for all its brands. Prior to that the company’s Hyundai dealership was at that location.

In a week or two, the Five-Star Automotive Group will begin to build a new parking lot with 140 spaces next to its dealership at 3068 Riverside Drive, Cramer said.

“We need the additional space,” he said.
