Shuttered dealership reopens under new ownership

A dealership that was once the victim of a flagging auto industry is coming back to life in Oakland.

The former Superior Toyota dealership on the edge of I-880 is reopening under new ownership.

The dealership closed its doors in February after just two months in business -- putting 80 people out of work.

But, Toyota sales are up, and the owner of a big Arizona dealership has now purchased the 200,000 square foot building.

He plans to hire 100 people and move to the bay area to run the business.
