Upgraded to 2,100sq.ft., the used car facility is bright & airy with a kids’ play area & outside patio
Dunedin, FL – For 30 years, Florida Auto Exchange and its memorable spokesman Dr. Credit have been helping drivers buy quality, used cars in Dunedin, on the corner of Main Street and Belcher Road. After many years of planning, the little yellow building finally received an upgrade to feature more inventory and serve the community even better. While they chose to keep the bright yellow paint to symbolize the Florida sunshine, everything else about the building is brand new.
“We have tried to think of everything to make your visit with us special,” owner Jeffrey Rhoads tells his customers. “It is not your conventional used car lot office. We want everything as transparent as possible.”
The traditional cubicle-style offices have been replaced with new tables out in the open, so customers can relax and not feel pressured. The managers’ offices are all glass so everyone can see the friendly customer service that the dealership has become famous for. Rhoads is even offering up his office, which includes a large conference table and flat screen TV, to local clubs and organizations that may need a place to meet.
“The entire building is designed to be very customer friendly and make you feel at home,” Rhoads says. “We are very low key and want to make you comfortable and happy while you purchase your vehicle and long afterwards.”
The salespeople at Florida Auto Exchange are also excited about the new features of the building, such as their larger, shareable workspaces rather than traditional desks. Another benefit of more square footage is having room to feature a special vehicle inside. The kids’ play area, comfortable chairs, and flat screen TV add to the family-friendly atmosphere. Several patio sets with umbrellas have also been added so customers can choose to complete their transactions outside. Still to come, landscaping will soon decorate the lot which will include a 30-foot flagpole to display their American flag.
“We are very proud of the way it has turned out,” Rhoads says. “Our hope is it will add some beauty to our very busy corner and provide an experience our visitors will find relaxing and enjoyable, whether they buy a vehicle or not.” A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the new building on January 31st, after business hours.
