Trucks were placing gravel on property along Midway Avenue and across from Jess Ford where the car dealer plans to do car detail work and develop a used car lot. Jess Ford recently purchased the property from A. J. Gerard, in background.

Wade Jess, owner, said that he plans to locate his firm’s auto detail shop across the street and have room to show and sell more used cars.

The frontage runs from Coulee Hardware’s product storage area house nearly to Jack’s Four Corner station.

Jess said the Ford dealership has had limited space for more economical used vehicles and will now be able to provide more choices for customers.

Since the purchase from A. J. Gerard, the lot area has been cleaned off so future development can occur.

Jess purchased the Ford dealership in 1991 from Buss Carlson.

He wasn’t sure just when the new property would be developed.
