A Rochelle car dealer is celebrating its 60th anniversary by breaking ground on a $3 million expansion and renovation.
The new 20,000 square foot facility at Sawicki Motor Company will replace the present showroom and customer service area and employ almost 30 full-time employees. The facility will go up behind the current building, so the dealership will remain fully operational during construction.
Sawicki opened its original showroom on Cherry Avenue in 1953; the new store was built in 1958 at the current location on Route 251.
Construction is set to finish by second quarter 2014.
