Basil Toyota Celebrates Grand Opening of a Brand New Facility

BUFFALO, N.Y., April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Buffalo, NY-Basil Toyota, located at 6157 South Transit Road is pleased to announce our Grand Opening at the former Gambino Ford location. After 18 months of construction on the 42,000 square foot state of the art facility, our Toyota dealership, is thrilled to open its doors to Western New York. "We are excited to strengthen our relationship with the Lockport community," says Mike Basil, President.

While located just next door to the former location, the all new Basil Toyota is more than double the size of the former location and can now stock over 500 cars including the popular Corolla and Camry. The new, modern building has the charm of a chalet, with large windows and earth toned stone walls, featuring service and sales open 7 days a week, cutting edge full service stations and even an outdoor patio for customers to relax! 

Basil Toyota is proud to continue serving the Lockport community and not only with vehicle sales and service. The location's upgrade has generated 10 new permanent positions, with room for more great people to grow with the team. 

In recent times the Basil Family of Dealerships, which employs around 600 people in the Western New York Area, has undergone renovations at several facilities, with others under way. Basil Resale Delaware, a Buffalo used car dealer, recently converted the Former Tunmore Automotive into a full service resale center. Joe Basil Chevrolet, a Buffalo Chevy dealership, recently completed a renovation of the entire facility, growing from 9 employees in 1984 to over 200 today! Robert Basil Chevy, Buick, Cadillac has plans to upgrade its facilities in the coming year to bring the Fredonia market a fresh look.

Furthermore, Mr. Basil says "With this state of the art facility we look forward to growing with our customers, from their first vehicle purchase to oil changes and maybe even someday helping their children with their first vehicle purchase."

Basil Toyota invites their Lockport and Erie county neighbors to come celebrate the Grand Opening all May, starting with a ribbon cutting ceremony this Thursday, May 3rd at 11 a.m. Conveniently located at South Transit Road in Lockport.
