Clarksville, Tenn – Using a YouTube video posted July 8, Clarksville auto dealer Jenkins and Wynne announced that the business will soon be moving from College Street to a new address on Trenton Road and Lowes Drive, just off 101st Airborne Parkway.
The new facility will be constructed on the 41 acres of land that is currently undeveloped at the Trenton Road location, and will include a new Ford store, Honda store, Pre-Owned store, and Body Shop.
Jenkins and Wynne President and CEO Don Jenkins can be heard on the video giving the history of the dealership after his father first established the Lincoln Mercury store on Madison Street in 1953. After adding vehicles by Ford in 1960 and Honda in 1973, Jenkins and Wynne purchased the properties surrounding the current College Street location. Jenkins remarked that now “there is no more land available” for the business to expand in that area, making a change of venue necessary.
Jenkins thanked staff members, in particular General Manager Murray Keeter, for their service, saying “faith in our loyal team members has driven this decision to embark on new facilities.” Jenkins described the move as a “decision to invest in our community,” one that he hopes will allow him to pass on the family owned business to the next generation.
Jenkins and Wynne has received The Best of Clarksville’s Best Dealership award for 12 consecutive years, the Ford President’s Award for Customer Satisfaction eight years in a row, and the Honda President’s Award for six years.
