Big Flats, NY (WENY)-- The Williams Auto Group opened a new Toyota dealership Tuesday.

The newly constructed facility is 38,000 square feet and is located off of County Route 64 in Big Flats. The new dealership took three years to plan and build and was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the larger location includes new technologies that aim to improve service time for customers, over-the-counter parts sales, as well as repair facilities. 

"We've been building and designing this project for about three years, and we were a little bit delayed with COVID, but we made quite the comeback story, and we're proud and happy to be in here today and we really think our customers are going to like it," explained Dalton Williams, Operations Manager for Williams Auto Group.

"The reasons you would come here instead of anywhere else is with the exception of the new building, is it's geared towards taking care of the customer and that's what this is all about," General Manager Dustin Corbett said. "These facilities are purely with the customer in mind. Their time is as important as anything, and we also want to have a place that our employees are happy to come to work everyday."

The new Toyota facility replaces Williams' former location, just down the road. This is the sixth dealership Williams has opened in the Twin Tiers, and its second Toyota dealership. The other one is in Sayre, Pennsylvania.
