The construction is on schedule but Mark Martin opened a new, albeit temporary, Chevrolet -- Buick -- GMC dealership on Jan. 2 in Highland.
The location is housed at the Mark Martin pre owned vehicle store.
Vic Davidson, Sales Manager for Mark Martin said the location will serve as a temporary site until construction is completed at Ash Flat.
Davidson said the dealership will serve all GMC, Buick, and Chevrolet needs, but will be concentrating on its GMC and Buick lines.
Mark Martin GMC will still carry its pre owned line of quality affordable automobiles.
Davidson said the proposed opening date for the new location at Ash Flat is in June.
Until then, the full service new vehicle dealership will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. weekdays, and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
Currently, Mark Martin is completing customers' service needs at their Melbourne location, but Davidson said the new Ash Flat location will offer a full service department.
He said, "The new location will make it convenient to serve everyone in the area."
