Long Beach Post Article by Brian Addison:
AfterÂ speculation following the purchase by CVS of two properties which housed auto dealers in 2008, the last of the two, Hooman Toyota, has officially vacated its location near Long Beachâ€™s traffic circle in favor of a more freeway-adjacent location on Willow St. and Redondo Ave.
According to theÂ LB4D Blog, the dealership, situated at 4401 Pacific Coast Highway, also operated a service and parts building slightly east at Atherton and Ximeno. The departure marks the second leaving of an auto dealership from the area, with Mitsubishiâ€”the other CVS-owned lotâ€”having moved to Cerritos in March of last year.
“Due to the growth and success of Hooman Toyota, the dealership must move from its current location to a larger facility to accommodate his sales volume and service operations,” said 4th District Councilmemer PatrickÂ O’Donnell. “It is my understanding that he has secured the former Boulevard Cadillac site, which has sat vacant for a number of years…Â While we very much appreciate his presence on the traffic circle, it makes business sense that the new site would better accommodate his large sales volume operation, jobs, and desire to be next to a major freeway.”
