RINGGOLD, Ga. -Mountain View Auto Group on Tuesday officially opened a new Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership here, which is its third store in Northwest Georgia.

"It's another stepping stone. It expands our footprint," said Don Thomas, managing partner of the Chattanooga-based group, noting it wasn't even in Georgia until 2014.

The $10 million dealership at 6276 Alabama Highway sits on a 7-acre tract with more than 400 new and used vehicles, he said.

The 34,000-square-foot facility employs about 48 people, Thomas said, and he expects sales to hit between 150 to 200 vehicles a month.
