The Collection Auto Group will host a grand opening celebration for Kia of Streetsboro, 835 Classic Drive, June 21 from noon to 2 p.m., according to a June 18 news release from the auto group.
The Collection purchased the dealership May 23 from Classic Auto Group.
“The Collection Auto Group is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service across all of our brands. Now Kia drivers can also count on us for that same first-class experience, with upfront pricing on our cars and on customers’ trade-in vehicles,” said The Collection Auto Group Owner Bernie Moreno.
The event will feature a meet and greet with Cleveland Browns Safety Donte Whitner.
The Kia acquisition is Moreno’s latest move in an aggressive business growth plan. Since purchasing a Mercedes-Benz dealership in 2005, Moreno has expanded his privately-owned company to include multiple elite automotive dealerships and an on-site performance center. The plan also includes the construction of a Volkswagen dealership across the street from Kia of Streetsboro. An opening is planned this fall at that location.
The dealership, which is expected to carry approximately up to 300 new Kia vehicles, will feature a comprehensive service and maintenance department with Brian Eastin managing the 6-acre campus.
