A huge crowd was on hand for Carriage Chevrolet’s official ribbon cutting Thursday, marking the opening of their new location at 1600 Huntsville Highway.
Fayetteville-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce representatives, Yogi Vowell, owner, and son, Judd Vowell, general manager, their families, friends and customers were on hand for the celebration.
“I started selling cars 40 years ago,” said Yogi Vowell. “I enjoy it – it’s been a great business for me.”
Yogi Vowell started the operation in August 1998 at the original location in Fayetteville and moved to the new location, a 13,000 square foot building located on six acres, in August.
The new location affords them a larger display area, more area on the ground and a newer facility, which has been upgraded. It is also easier for customers to access.
Carriage Chevrolet winter hours are 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7:30 a.m. until 12 p.m. Saturday.
