Nissan Opens First Purpose-Built Nissan 2.0 Store In US, Iconic Design On Display At Zeigler Nissan

Zeigler Automotive Group announces the opening of its state-of-the-art Zeigler Nissan Gurnee dealership now located at 3175 E. Grand Ave in Lindenhurst, IL. The new facility is the first ground-up, purpose-built Nissan Retail Environment Design Initiative (NREDI 2.0) store in the United States.

Kalamazoo, Michigan (PRWEB) April 10, 2017

Zeigler Nissan Gurnee opened its highly anticipated, 300,000-sq. ft. facility located at 3175 E. Grand Ave in Lindenhurst on February 27, 2017. The Zeigler Automotive Group dealer will hold an Official Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting on May 17th, 2017.

The new state-of-the-art dealership is based on Nissan's innovative NREDI 2.0 design, intended to provide customers with attractive, comfortable, and welcoming places to spend time while also offering needed services as efficiently as possible. The initiative is part of the new standard for next generation Nissan dealerships worldwide.

Although other NREDI 2.0 dealerships have opened in the US, these facilities were modified from their existing structures to fit the design.

“The Zeigler Nissan Gurnee store is the first ground-up, purpose built NREDI 2.0 completion in the US," said Mark P. Kuharski, Senior Manager Nissan Retail Facilities. "This store is currently the purest reflection of the iconic 2.0 design."

Highlights of the design include a modern showroom with a quiet area, customer lounge with 15 tablets available for vehicle customization, and a unique Nissan vehicle showcase.

“We are proud to have worked with Nissan on this groundbreaking, next generation facility. It’s all about giving the customer the very best experience,” said George Boutsikakis, General Manager of Zeigler Nissan Gurnee.

The Zeigler Automotive Group dealership was previously located in Lake View, Illinois.

Yes! It's an insanely huge facility.  I'm sure you're more than welcome to come by.  We'll be doing something big for their Grand Opening Event in May.
