Southern Motors Acura Held Grand Opening for New Dealership on Chatham Parkway

Southern Motors Acura held the grand opening of their new dealership at 102 Park of Commerce Dr. on Chatham Parkway. As part of the celebration, one visitor, Jim Backer, went go home with a free two-year lease on a new Southern Motors Acura ILX.

The new outlet, with a 32,000-square-foot showroom, offers new and used car sales and customer service while Southern Motors’ current location, which has been on Broughton Street for 88 years, will continue to provide service for downtown customers.

“We are thrilled with this expansive new building and footprint, which will allow us to grow and support our community,” said Ross Kaminsky, Southern Motors co-owner general manager. “And our customers can expect the same great service they are used to from one of the oldest family run dealerships in the area.”

The new showroom was designed by Lynch Associate Architects; JTVS Builders served as the general contractor. Founded in 1929 by Julius Kaminsky, Southern Motors is a third-generation family owned and operated business.

The Kaminsky family believes in their city and feels it is important to show support through numerous charities and investments.

As part of that effort, a percentage of every car sold at Southern Motors benefits Hospice Savannah’s Camp Aloha. Weekend Camp Aloha is for children ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of a loved one within the previous 24 months. For more information, visit
