On paper, Hanlees in Davis is simply asking the city for permission to construct two new buildings, so that each of their current brands – Toyota, Nissan, Chevy and Ford – would have its own store. Right now they share space in a pair of locations. But the expansion will give the Davis Auto Center along Chiles Road a stronger hand to play if Woodland votes next month, as expected, to authorize a new auto center by Interstate 5. Davis badly needs local sales tax revenues, and has a long history of having its residents go shopping in Woodland. The Davis auto dealers generate nearly 40% of the city’s total. Hanlee’s expansion should drive sales higher.
