Toyota of Hattiesburg opening second location

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The new building on hwy 98 west will be the new second location for Toyota of Hattiesburg.  Instead of getting rid of the old buildings on W. Pine Street, they've decided to utilize both to better serve their customers.

"Well in the other facility we were scattered between four buildings so we're combining those all into one and we do have more land for future growth also here," says Alton Pierce, Toyota of Hattiesburg's general manager.

The new building will require new employees and Toyota is in the process of hiring individuals to fill open spots. Pierce says, "We'll have to double our number for both facilities, so we're running eighty employees on west pine and so we'll probably have to have that many here or more. You go to and they've got an employment tab there and you can fill out the application on the website."

The second location should be open the first of August.
