“A great deal of thought and foresight is placed on our decisions about where to grow,” President and CEO Jeff Williams said. “We select communities where we believe we can fill a void when it comes to what we offer at Car-Mart. We’re different from traditional dealerships. In addition to providing quality, used vehicles we also provide financing and exceptional service after the sale. We are committed to providing peace of mind for our customers, and we believe communities are better when we are there.”
April Renfro will manage the new dealership.
“We’re excited about joining the Edmond community,” Renfro said. “It’s a growing area with a lot of potential. At Car-Mart, we offer a unique buying process for our customers where it’s not just a purchase but an experience. We get to know our customers and work closely with them on flexible financing that meets their needs and budgets. We stay with them throughout their journey from the time they buy their vehicle until they pay-off their vehicle and beyond. We keep them on the road.”
The new dealership at 909 S. Broadway is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It is closed Sundays. Customers can shop online or start the financing approval process by completing an online application.
