RICHMOND, Virginia, 2016-Oct-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — CarMax, Inc. (NYSE: KMX), the nation’s largest retailer of used cars, is celebrating the grand opening of its new store in Maple Shade, located at 531 Route 38 West. The addition of the Maple Shade store marks the fourth CarMax location in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area. The store will stock more than 300 used vehicles of nearly every make and model and has brought approximately 40 new jobs to the area.
In celebration of the Maple Shade store opening, CarMax donated $5,000 to Hopeworks ‘N Camden. Maple Shade CarMax associates selected this nonprofit for its mission to work with youth in the community and help students develop a plan for education and a brighter future.
