Downey to welcome new car dealer

July 11, 2017 by  

Giant RV, a dealer in recreational vehicles, is planning to open a location in Downey.

Mike Murphy, the company’s vice president of operations, says the new facility will be state-of-the-art, featuring an indoor showroom that offers more than 90,000 square feet of space, plus a service department covering 20,000 square feet. The site will cover 10 acres, and could create as many as 90 new jobs in the operations of its service and sales departments.

By expanding its operations to Downey, Giant RV believes it will more effectively serve customers in Orange County and the Los Angeles area.

Giant RV has been in business for 30 years, operating three locations. It carries vehicles from all the leading RV manufacturers, including Forest River, Eclipse, Winnebago, Heartland, Fleetwood, and others. It offers specialist vehicles like motorhomes, and a services department for repairs.

In addition, the company works with various financial institutions to help buyers finance their vehicles, and offer discounts to members of several groups such as law enforcement personnel, firefighters, and veterans.

If all goes well, Giant RV will open its Downey facility in October this year. Business expansions like this often involved close work with a flyer or brochure printing company to create a mailer for a targeted-area mailing, introducing the new facility and inviting people to stop in.
