Multi-location dealership La Mesa RV plans to open and eighth location in San Bernardino, Calif., according to The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif.
San Diego-based La Mesa RV, which also has locations in Lake Havasu, Mesa, Tucson and Yuma, Ariz., and in Acton and Davis, Calif., has informed San Bernardino city officials that it plans to open a dealership south of Interstate-10 in a former home furnishings store building.
The proposed new La Mesa RV dealership and service center would be in a 100,000 square foot building that housed a House2House home furnishings franchise store until three months ago.
The new La Mesa RV location also would be adjacent to a Camping World store along Redlands Boulevard, according to the Press-Enterprise.
A variety of merchants are looking to open new locations in San Bernardino because rents are relatively cheap, the newspaper reported. Space that rents for $1.50 to $2 per square foot per month in the nearby cities of Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga rents for $1 per square foot per month in San Bernardino, according to the Press-Enterprise.
