Lamb's remodeled the entire building and built a tire storage area equipped to hold about 600 units. The dealership did not disclose its investment in acquiring and remodeling the store.
“We had to pretty much start from scratch,” Mr. Ramsey said. “We put all new electrical in the building. We basically took the front showroom structure back down to metal and rebuilt it all.”
The new store is located less than two miles from Lamb's closest location at 290 West in Austin, but Mr. Ramsey said the freeways bordering that store have provided good separation.
