STATESVILLE, NC (WSIC) – A ceremony was held Tuesday to unroll a new American flag for the Randy Marion Ford construction site in Statesville.
“It just shows a progression and where we’re going,” says Randy Marion who was joined by his wife and family members for the occasion. “Obviously we’ve been out here moving a lot of dirt, but we want people to know we are serious.”
The flag is being displayed on what will become the service facility at the new dealership which is expected to be complete no later than March 2020. A larger flag matching the size currently flying at Randy Marion Chevrolet along I-40 will be flown once construction is complete. That flag is 25 x 40 feet and allowed by city ordinance.
The new $18 million facility is located across I-77 from the current store and will sit just behind the Hilton Garden Inn.
