PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTOK) - Bullock AutoNation started out a passion project for owner, Leigh Bullock. When doors open Monday, it will be a reality.
“What I am wanting to do and what I have been wanting to do for years, is Bullock AutoNation- and that’s going to be my preowned cars and preowned trucks,” says Bullock.
Bullock is the woman behind an already successful business, Bullock Toyota in Louisville, but she says the two businesses are separate.
"If you wanted a Porsche or you wanted a Lexus SUV or you wanted a certain Mercedes or BMW or something like that and you just couldn't get your hands on it, we can usually find it for you and we can do all the leg work for you and you can come pick it up when it arrives on the truck," says Bullock.
Unlike Bullock Toyota, Bullock AutoNation will carry makes outside of just Toyota.
Bullock says she will eventually employee around 25-30 workers at the lot. President of the community development partnership David Vowell says the business will be great for Philadelphia.
"The city of Philadelphia lives on sales tax and of course the county will benefit tax wise from them coming in- you know job creation and the tax base and just bringing more people into Philadelphia and Neshoba County will be very beneficial."
