New Dealership Slated For Fairfield Auto Mall
By Ines Bebea Daily Republic
FAIRFIELD - Another car dealership has plans to call the Fairfield Auto Mall home. Simon Buniak, president of Golden State Mitsubishi and Suzuki, will bring a Subaru dealership to the auto mall by the end of 2008.
Work on his 2-acre parcel is expected to begin in April. When completed, his dealership will be the 16th at the auto mall.
'Fairfield is perfectly located between two major cities that provide a great business climate,' said Buniak, a 30-year veteran of the auto industry. 'We will cater our products to sophisticated buyers and high-end consumers who are interested in performance and reliability.'
Buniak's announcement follows an earlier report that Mercedes-Benz will open a dealership at the auto mall. Paul Halata, the retired president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz, U.S.A., and his son Mark, plan to build a state-of-the-art dealership that includes a two-story glass building and parking on the roof.
'An additional dealership is another major economic step forward. The auto mall is proving to be a very successful venture for the city,' Fairfield Mayor Harry Price said. 'It's easy freeway accessibility attracts customers from all areas and, while spending time at the auto mall, they also spend money in other businesses, whether it is the Jelly Belly or Anheuser-Busch tours, Fun Farm Family Days in Suisun City and to our restaurants.'
In addition to tax revenue opportunities, the auto mall also provides employment for those interested in careers in the auto repair industry, Price added.
According to the city's Economic Development Division, new car sales generated $2.9 million in taxes in 2006. That figure is projected to increase to $4 million in 2008, accounting for 22 percent of the city's total sales tax income.
