JACKSON, MS (WLBT) – The former Deuce McAllister Nissan dealership on the hill in south Jackson will soon re-open as Cannon Nissan.
It has been bought by Greenwood-based Michael Joe Cannon and he plans to open February 8th.
Deuce McAllister Nissan filed for bankruptcy protection last March and has been closed for 10 months.
Cannon would not say how much he paid for the dealership but did say he purchased it from the bank.
Cannon said this would be his fifth dealership and the reason he expects to succeed here is experience. "You know the thing I think we bring is 30 plus years in the automobile business. The automobile business is not any easy business, like any business, and so we bring that and bring some people that's got plenty experience," said Cannon.
Cannon said he has been working with the Metrocenter Area Coalition on the deal for the past two months.
