Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Nissan of Oakland announces they have landed at a new facility. The 20,000 square feet dealership is located at 2820 Broadway. This East Bay new Nissan dealership features Nissan’s full line of new cars and trucks, including the fully electric Leaf, as well as used vehicle sales, parts and repair services. The new venture is led by Mike Murphy and represents a significant investment and belief in Oakland.
East Bay new Nissan dealer, Mike Murphy is dedicated to bringing back the success of Broadway Auto Row after the slump car dealerships suffered during the 2008 recession. He said of his decision, “Given the continued success of our Volkswagen dealership, we felt this was an excellent opportunity to bring the Nissan and Infiniti brands back and attract more potential car buyers to Oakland.”
Nissan of Oakland expects to hire up to 60 employees in its first few months in business and has a target of 85 employees by March 2012. As a business attraction effort for the community, the City of Oakland’s Enterprise Zone is working with East Bay Nissan dealer Murphy to ensure that Nissan of Oakland receives the hiring tax credits and other benefits offered through this program to businesses bringing jobs to the municipality.
Gregory Hunter, Deputy Director in the Community and Economic Development Agency, says, “Oakland residents will have more car buying options that will keep their dollars in our community.”
In addition to employment opportunities, Nissan of Oakland is expected to generate $200,000 in sales and business tax revenue for the City of Oakland. This in turn will go towards the city’s General Fund, which supports recreation programs, libraries, fire and police services and other vital city services.
