The former Walgreens building which has sat vacant for many years at the prime traffic intersection of Grape Rd and Edison Rd finally has a new long term tenant. DriveTime, a national used car dealer has started to make improvements to the building. DriveTime is headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, operates over 129 locations and specializes in providing credit to car buyers. This new dealership will join other long time local car dealer along Grape Rd including Basney, Gurley Leep and Lexus of Mishawaka.
The former Walgreens has been without a long term tenant since the most recent economic depression. It has had a couple seasonal Halloween stores in the past, but this new tenant is another sign that we are climbing our way out of the downtown and filling some of our retail vacancy.
