Interstate Honda Dealership Launches With Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony On September 21

The new Interstate Honda dealership launches with a grand opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Thursday, September 21, at 1:00 pm. “This investment in a new

Honda location will result in a win-win-win outcome for the city of Chehalis, for American Honda and for us personally,” said President John Csernotta. Ideally situated off I-5 between Portland and Seattle, Interstate Honda is located at 1820 NW Louisiana Ave at I-5 and exit #72. They are open seven days a week and offer EV charging stations.

This is the second Honda dealership Csernotta has opened in Washington with the first purchased six years ago in Aberdeen. The site for the new Interstate Honda was initially considered in June of 2019 with a visit and discussion with Honda’s corporate staff. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony marks a four-year journey to completion and the owners are already eyeing plans for expansion. Delays can sometimes turn fortuitous and in this case, Csernotta and his partner seized upon an opportunity to be the first Honda dealership in the nation to feature their new Blue Stage Design that sports an open-concept interior and harnesses modern technology that allows for iPad based paperless transactions. The old days of closed-door deals make way for a relaxed and stress-free environment that focuses on the customer experience.
