Drop by Blue Dog RV in Kennewick today to help celebrate the dealership's grand opening.
The ribbon-cutting will be at 4:30 p.m. with 6-foot Subway sandwiches, soft drinks and gift certificate giveaways for parts and service.
The dealership opened a few months ago, but Lesli Smith, who handles finance, customer service and sales, said, "business has been so good we haven't had time to celebrate."
Salesman Keith Bennett said the owners, John and Rebecca Asplund, got their start in RVs working at a Tri-City dealership where Bennett also worked.
Never miss a local story.
"John went from sales to general manager and Rebecca from sales to finance director, both at the same dealership. They saw an opportunity in Post Falls, Idaho, and opened their first Blue Dog RV in 2008, then expanded to Hayden, Idaho, and now Kennewick," Bennett said.
"They've done really well in less than four years," said Smith.
The Kennewick Blue Dog RV has 18 employees and offers sales and service and parts.
Blue Dog RV offers new and used Class C and Class A motorhomes, towables and toy haulers for motorcycles and four-wheelers.
"The Class C motorhomes are the ones with the overhang above the cab and the Class As are the ones that look like a bus," Smith said. "Normally we have one or two used tent trailers too, but no new ones."
Call 987-1688 for sales and service. The business is at 412 S. Ely St., Kennewick.
Hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
