Lufkin's Loving Honda moving to new location on loop

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The loop in Lufkin will soon be getting another business.

Joe Loving and his employees were out early this morning to break ground on the future home of Loving Honda.

The dealership will be moving from its current location on First Street to the loop right next to Loving Toyota.

According to Loving, the move will be good for both his business and the community. He also said that the move is a sign of a growing East Texas economy.

"Our business is much better. We know the economy in East Texas is picking up, so we're excited about the whole situation," Loving said. "We think it is great and the future looks very bright."

People with the dealership expect the move to triple their sales.

The total process will take about 9 to 12 months to complete, which means a grand opening could take place as soon as next April.
