Interesting aside... this building was next door to Jimmie Green's place, and he bought it to tear down and expand his business (I assume). It was called the Bible Cyclorama.

Not great quality at all, but this is from the January 28, 1955 Chronicle story about the opening of the dealership.

Other than different signs and different cars in the lot it looked pretty much the same 25 years later.

1955 was a great year to open a Chevrolet dealership. Advertising for the 1955 models called them "The Hot One" and they were with COMPLETELY NEW styling and an all new overhead valve V8 engine replacing the venerable but not nearly as powerful "stove bolt" six cylinder engine. The building was certainly not that exciting but, in those days I guess, the cars sold themselves.

Oh for sure 2020...

the question is when.

I am betting they could have it open in October but I can guarantee it will be open by November just in time for holiday shopping etc...

Target looking very very close.

 

Saw many employees showing up for their shift this morning I'm guessing for stocking/etc. You can see the 3 lifts in the picture, so clearly some painting/finishing/whatever is still happening.
