A local Ford dealership has gotten a little fancier.
Nazareth Ford held a grand reopening Oct. 29 to celebrate the completion of $1 million worth of renovations to its facility.
Dealership owner J. Shauger said work began in late May to overhaul the building to reflect the new Ford design that the manufacturer has been rolling out nationally.
He said the exterior now reflects that updated Ford look.
On the inside, many changes were made to improve the comfort and convenience of customers.
A Quick Lane light-duty service lane was installed so that work such as tire rotation and oil changes could be done in a separate area where customers could wait for service in a half-hour or less.
Shauger said there are Wi-Fi work stations that the customers can use.
“If you come in here between 3:30 and 4 o’clock, you’ll see a lot of teachers grading papers. We also get a lot of traveling insurance salesmen in here,” Shauger said.
The stations, which also offer privacy for those working while they wait, should make it easier for professionals to conduct business, he said.
The dealership added all new furniture and updated its service area, adding more waiting room space.
Energy-efficient LED lighting has been added to the interior and exterior of the building.
