Company Celebrates with Community Donations
RICHMOND, Virginia, 2016-Feb-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — CarMax, Inc. (NYSE: KMX), the nation’s largest retailer of used cars, officially opened its first store in Buford, Georgia, located at 3721 Buford Drive. The store is more than 15,000 square feet, occupies more than 7 acres and stocks more than 300 used vehicles.
In celebration of the Buford store opening, CarMax donated $5,000 to North Gwinnett Cooperative, Inc. Buford CarMax associates selected this nonprofit because of its commitment to providing food, clothing, utility and prescription medication assistance to area residents in need. More than 30 CarMax associates also recently volunteered at North Gwinnett Cooperative where they helped clean and organize the food pantry.
The CarMax Foundation also is providing a $10,000 grant to Gwinnett Children’s Shelter. This grant will fund The Next Step educational program which offers homeless youth in the shelter access to residential advisors and tutors to help with homework and support their education. This grant also came at the recommendation of Buford CarMax associates.
“Buford is CarMax’s sixth location in the Atlanta area since we first came to town in 1995,” said Karl Wagner, location general manager of the Buford CarMax. “Our customers know that the used car buying experience at CarMax is honest and transparent and that’s why we continue to lead the industry.”
