On Tuesday, Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia announced the grand opening for the plant’s on-site gift shop with a special ceremony at the plant. This new gift shop is another special benefit for team members at KMMG and gives them all a chance to shop for some of the hottest Kia items right inside the plant’s lobby. A special raffle is being held for team members to commemorate this grand opening with some of the winning items being an iPad, a Blake Griffin NBA jersey and gift shop gift certificates. “The new KMMG gift shop is another tremendous benefit for our KMMG team members,” said Randy Jackson, KMMG’s Vice President of Human Resources and Administration. “Having this store on-site will be an added convenience for team members when they see any Kia items they would like to own. Our team members do a great job building world class, high quality vehicles and adding this gift shop is another way that we can say thank you to them.”
