RICHMOND, Virginia, 2016-Oct-29 — /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 Daytona, located at 800 N. Tomoka Farms Road. The Daytona store will stock more than 200 used vehicles of nearly every make and model and has brought approximately 40 new jobs to the area.
In celebration of the Daytona store opening, CarMax donated $5,000 to the local nonprofit, Food Brings Hope. Daytona CarMax associates selected this nonprofit for its mission to help underprivileged students reach their full potential. This donation will help support the after-school program that provides 850 local students healthy meals, academic support and opportunities to participate in athletic events.
The CarMax Foundation is also providing a $10,000 grant to the Boys & Girls Club of Volusia/Flagler Counties. Funding from the grant will help support programs that provide children a safe place to learn and excel after school, on select weekends and during the summer. Support for this organization also came at the recommendation of Daytona associates.
“We are excited to support area nonprofits that are making a difference in the community and look forward to continuing these partnerships,” said Mike Collins, location general manager of the Daytona store. “The Daytona CarMax associates are also thrilled to bring the simple and stress-free CarMax experience to area customers.”
