“Gunther Motor Co. has grown so significantly over the past decade we have had to completely rebuild with brand new facilities,” vice president Jay Gunther said in a statement. The new store “is located next to our largest body shop in South Florida with on-site insurance adjusters and an Enterprise rental center,” he added.

The project will break ground April 24 and is slated to open at 1900 South State Road 7 in late 2014 or early 2015. [Sun-Sentinel]Christopher Cameron
