Local Dealership Expanding

Local KIA dealership owner Russell Barnett has announced a major expansion and renovation to the existing dealership on South Anderson Street in Tullahoma. Barnett purchased the KIA dealership in Tullahoma in 2001. Barnett says they will be adding six new service bays. In addition to the 3,000-square-foot expansion, the entire facility will be getting a facelift, according to Barnett. Earlier this month, Barnett announced plans to re-open the Ford dealership later this year at 1106 E. Carroll St. in Tullahoma under the name Russell Barnett Ford. Barnett was the original owner of the Tullahoma Ford dealership, operating it until 1996.
