Nelson Mazda makes Cool Springs move

Purchase of Cool Springs Mazda, relo to Saturn site gives company three area locations

Nelson Mazda will open a Cool Springs location in mid-July after purchasing the former Saturn of Cool Springs site, as well as the Cool Springs Mazda dealership.

Nelson partner Chad Custer confirmed the dealership will open its new space — its third Middle Tennessee dealership, joining a downtown Nashville branch at the former Hippodrome Nissan on Broadway and a Hickory Hollow location — next month.

The Saturn facility — a 23,000-square-foot space on five acres at Mallory Lane and South Springs Drive — has been empty for nearly three years.
