After a multimillion-dollar expansion and renovation, Park Place Lexus Grapevine has much to celebrate. In the spirit of the season, the dealership hosted a toy drive at its grand re-opening party, benefitting the GRACE Christmas Cottage. As a steward of God's blessings and resources in the community, GRACE demonstrates compassion for those less fortunate by providing assistance to individuals and families in crisis and guidance toward self-sufficiency.

At the event, guests brought hundreds of new, unwrapped toys to fill two Lexus IS convertibles to overflowing, including new bicycles and toys for all ages. The event included an assortment of culinary offerings prepared and served by The Ranch of Las Colinas as well as sublime sips by Stella Artois and Clos du Bois. The party-ready delivery area featured V-gars (electronic vapor cigars) and Balvenie Scotch tasting. The festive Lexus Lounge featured a Kendra Scott social swag station, Reyka and Solerno liqueur cosmopolitans and decadent desserts by Chef John Franke.

The 18-month expansion and renovation was a complete transformation, updating the residential-style showroom into a contemporary space with woods and stone along with tapestries. The five-car showroom was enlarged to hold eight vehicles. A new technology area and Kids’ Playroom were added off the Client Lounge. The dealership also added a fourth lane to its service drive, a new delivery area and expanded its car wash facility to accommodate more cars in a shorter period of time.

Originally opening in 2000, Park Place Lexus Grapevine is located at 901 Highway 114 East, off Minters Chapel Road. Park Place Lexus is an award-winning dealership, featuring a No. 1 national ranking in customer satisfaction. In 2005, Park Place Lexus was the first automobile dealership to ever receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation's highest Presidential honor for quality and organizational performance excellence. The dealership has also won the Elite of Lexus award for the past 10 consecutive years.

Ken Schnitzer founded Park Place Dealerships in 1987 with a single Mercedes-Benz dealership on Oak Lawn. Today, Park Place Dealerships employs more than 2,000 people and operates 18 full-service dealerships representing luxury brands including Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Infiniti, Volvo, smart, Jaguar, Lotus, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, McLaren, and Maserati.
