HOUMA, LA, December 13, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Mike Barker will tell you that seeing the all new Barker Honda today is like a dream come true. "We worked out of mobile trailers adjacent to the site, so every day we could watch the progress," noted Barker, whose family owns the dealership, "and now to see the beautiful Honda Generation 3 Image facility today makes it worth the wait."
The Grand Opening ribbon cutting is scheduled for Thursday, December 14th, 2017, from 5PM until 7PM with local dignitaries expected as well as representatives from Honda's national offices.
The dealership, located at 1662 Martin King Luther Boulevard, is one of only 15% of dealerships nationwide built to Honda's newest and most demanding standards. Barker noted, "It was a team effort with our design and construction crews, many from right here in the Houma area, who completed this project."
The site was formerly Cournoyer Honda and purchased by Barker in January, 2000. "We have now transformed into a state-of-the-art facility, and I sincerely want to thank our customers and employees for their patience," added Barker Honda General Manager Lester Bimah.
With over 35,000 square feet, the finished facility features an open showroom with floor-to-ceiling glass and truly advanced technology such as LED lighting throughout the dealership. Customers will enjoy wi-fi access, a modern lounge with Ipad/notebook chairs, a phone charging bar, as well as streaming information when a customer's car is in service.
With a completely new state-of-the-art operation for sales and service, Barker is excited about the opportunity to continue serving Houma and the surrounding area even better. Barker noted, "Our Honda product line is incredible and we have the sales and service facility to provide an exceptional ownership experience."
