NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The largest Rolls-Royce showroom in North America has just opened on Long Island.

The 9,200-square-foot showroom features a café, meeting spaces and outdoor terrace.

It is the second new Rolls-Royce showroom to open in the country this year.

Luke Vuksanaj, head of operations, said the sluggish economy is not affecting what people are willing to spend.

The luxury vehicles range from $225,000 to $500,000.

The Jericho location, owned by Antoine Dominic, is hoping to sell between 70 and 80 Rolls-Royce vehicles this year.

Despite the latest disappointing numbers from the Labor Department, Dominic said he isn’t too concerned about the weak job market.

On Friday, the department announced only 69,000 jobs were added in May — the fewest in a year. The unemployment rate also rose to 8.2 percent.

“We’re employing people so that’s a good sign,” Dominic said.

Rolls-Royce has 33 showrooms in the United States.
