Pat Boyle hopes to have his 13-year-old used car dealership, Integrity Auto Group, open in its new location by Friday.
On Monday, some of Integrity Auto’s 10 employees ferried all of the dealership’s inventory of late-model used cars and trucks to the new store, a 2,400-square-foot building Boyle had built near the northeast corner of Kellogg and 143rd East.
Integrity has closed its two other stores at 220 E. Kellogg and 106 S. Hydraulic, both of which were in leased properties.
“We felt like the traffic would be good and the size of the lot … was about perfect for us,” Boyle said in an interview at the new store on Monday.
Until now, Boyle’s dealerships had always been in leased spaces built and designed for other uses. For instance, the east Kellogg and Hydraulic locations previously were convenience stores. Both of those locations constrained his inventory, he said, which was the reason Integrity Auto operated in multiple locations for years.
At about an acre, the new location at 14423 E. Kellogg gives the dealership the space it needs, Boyle said.
Chris Martsolf Construction was the general contractor and the interior was designed by Impressive Properties. ACI Design Studio is furnishing the building.
The dealership’s phone number remains 316-264-6004.
