Not sure if this was posted already but I noticed that the public storage business on Interstate, next to the Interstate Center west side, is undergoing some kind of demolition. All of the metal roll-up doors have been removed exposing empty storage rooms. All the glass windows and doors have been removed from the Interstate Center building and two big tractors are sitting in the parking lot like they are preparing for a demolition of both properties.

Guessing that Cumberland Auto Group probably bought that property since they just bought the Interstate Center property next door and looks like they are making it into a showroom. Maybe adding a new brand dealership to their group. All just a guess. Should be some permits pulled from the city.

I hadn't noticed that, and I was by there yesterday. I went back by there today, and holy cow you're right. I looked it up, and Cumberland Auto bought the storage units last year. Between that lot and the Interstate Center lot next door, that's just over 4 acres which is larger than the Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealer down the street. I have no idea what they have in mind, but I would love to see another brand dealership, hopefully Subaru. But who knows.

It's interesting that just about every new car dealership in Cookeville has expanded in the last few months: Carlen Chevrolet added a lot on Willow, the Nissan and Hyundai dealerships have expanded to the old Norwalk site, the Ford dealership took over the old restaurant fronting Willow, and now this with the Cumberland automotive group. The only new car dealership that hasn't expanded lately is the Honda dealership which expanded to its current site about 10 years ago from its smaller lot where Aldi is now.

Hadn't heard about Nissan & Hyundai going to the old Norwalk site, when was that announced? Are they building yet? Even though we left over a year ago, Hyundai still calls us about every 2 weeks, either wanting us to come in for service or to trade in our old Hyundai. Have told them we left, they won'take us off the list.

Hyundai and Nissan park inventory at the old Norwalk site....billboard overhead I40 there points to both dealerships' "overstock."

Yeah sorry, I didn't mean to imply that the Hyundai and Nissan dealerships were moving to the old Norwalk site. I knew Cookeville Nissan was bursting at the seams and had approached Bowling World more than once, even to the point of offering enough $$ so BW could build a brand new facility elsewhere. But BW won't budge. I didn't know the Hyundai dealership was also cramped for space until I saw that big billboard tragenvol mentioned above.

Anyway, I'm glad business is good for both dealerships and, apparently, for other new car dealerships in Cookeville. I'm eager to find out what Cookeville Automotive has in mind for those 4 acres it's clearing.

Gotchya. Occasionally checking here and wasting my time looking at the Herald-Citizen online are about my only way to see the progress back there. Thanks for the info.

Default Car Dealership

My vote is either for Subaru or Mazda. Saves the drive time to Harriman or Nashville.

Default Sears

The latest development rumor is that HomeGoods is in negotiations to lease the soon to be vacated Sears store in Jackson Plaza. It would be an easy transition since they would just knock out the wall to the adjacent TJ Maxx and use the same cashier checkout. Saves on the drive to Mt. Juliet. Hope they are able to come to terms as this will be a welcome addition to Cookeville!

Would they be using all of the Sears store or dividing it? Seems kinda big for a HomeGoods.


I wish Home Depot could locate there, but that would be very cramped and it is directly in the middle of the development. Perhaps they will find a suitable spot elsewhere.
