SPRINGFIELD — Springfield Auto & Truck Equipment will host a grand opening and ribbon cutting today, Dec. 13, at 10:30 a.m. as it moves from its previous location on Bay Street to a newly renovated and greatly expanded shop just a mile away at 797 Berkshire Ave., Indian Orchard.
Local dignitaries planning to attend include Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno and state Rep. Angelo Puppolo. Light refreshments will be served.
The move represents a significant expansion from a 3,800-square-foot facility to a 12,000-square-foot building, which includes a 5,000-square-foot showroom for product displays.
Customers are invited to stop by the new location on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., to tour the new facility, talk with staff, and enjoy light refreshments.
