Green Hyundai to hold grand opening for new dealership

The public is invited to the grand opening celebration of the new Green Hyundai dealership at 601 W. Stanford Ave. on Friday, March 22, from 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m.

Green Family Stores opened the doors of its new 30,000-square-foot Hyundai dealership Nov. 1. The Stanford Avenue location is one of five prototypes nationwide to roll out the new format for the Hyundai brand, including more space devoted to electric vehicles.

“This really is the future of the auto industry right here in little old Springfield,” said Mike Quimby, general manager and partner at Green Hyundai. “Central Illinois has been so good to us, and we’re proud to have this beautiful facility to serve them.”

Construction began in May 2022 on the new store, which was intended to be more centrally located. Since March of 1986, Green Hyundai had operated at 1200 S. Dirksen Parkway. That location is now home to Green on Dirksen, a sales and service dealership specializing in certified pre-owned vehicles.

The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting at noon. Guests will be treated to lunch afterwards and can enter a drawing to win $1,000.

Green Hyundai will be presenting a donation check to Safe Families for Children, a nonprofit that works to keep kids safe and families intact.

The Spaulding Veteran’s Memorial will also be presenting a surprise award to a local serviceman at 1 p.m.
