Riley Chevrolet to Relocate Sales, Service
June 11, 2019—The Riley Chevrolet and Riley Toyota dealerships both sustained heavy damage from the EF-3 tornado that hit part of Jefferson City on May 22, reported Jefferson City News Tribune.
While both sales buildings remain closed as cleanup continues, the Riley Chevrolet Collision Center has been back in business since May 31.
The sales staff is working from a temporary setup at River Region Credit Union on West Edgewood Drive, where vehicles are being sold and delivered.
And, until the Christy Drive locations are back on the road, the whole displaced Riley Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac operation—new and used car sales, service and parts—will temporarily relocate to the former car dealership building at 3205 Missouri Blvd. where Riley once operated its Toyota store and which most recently housed a Kia dealership that closed last year.
And while Riley's insurance company has nearly completed an estimate on the more than 750 vehicles that were totaled across both dealerships, those vehicles have been moved off the main lot.Replacing that stock of used vehicles will be another bump in the road, according to the report.
