LONGVIEW, TX (07.03.2015) – Big Daddy’s Stereo celebrated the company’s new location with a Grand Opening event on Saturday, June 27th.

The new 10,000 square foot ground-up facility is absolutely cutting edge in terms of layout and functionality. With 5,000 square feet devoted to retail showroom and 5,000 devoted to installation and warehouse there is a great deal of flexibility. The showroom floor is treated concrete and easy access is provided to display multiple vehicles in the showroom.

Continuing, Owens commented, “During the Grand Opening event we gathered over 200 new email addresses from those who attended the event. We did not do any installs that day but took a number of deposits for jobs.”

To capture the event a local company, certified for drone activity, was on site. Much to the amazement of many in the crowd the drone crisscrossed over the event to capture video of the Grand Opening.

Concluding, Owens commented, “The turnout from local folks was terrific. The amount of industry participation was so amazing. We can not thank all enough for their support.”
