BENTONVILLE, Ark., and TEMPE, Ariz. - 

America’s Car-Mart and DriveTime combined to make four moves involving their dealership network in four different states during the past month.

DriveTime shared developments in connection with three locations, including the opening of a new dealership in Woodbridge, Va.

DriveTime’s newest dealership sits on 2.64 acres with 6,621 square feet of showroom space and almost 170 parking spaces dedicated to vehicles and Virginia customers.  

Located 20 miles south of Washington, D.C., Woodbridge is home to the Leesylvania State Park and the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The area takes its name from Thomas Mason’s wooden toll bridge for the “King’s Highway” traffic across the Occoquan River.

Turning its attention South, DriveTime also relocated one of its dealerships in Florida.

Located three miles from the previous site in Sanford, Fla., DriveTime now has a store at 3575 N. US Highway 17-92, in Sanford. The new dealership site will hold 165 vehicles on almost 2.81 acres with more than 7,262 square feet in the showroom.

Sanford, known as the “Historic Waterfront Gateway City,” is home to the Seminole State College of Florida, the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

DriveTime also relocated one of its stores in Texas, too.

Now located at 4715 S. General Bruce Street in Temple, Texas, the new dealership site will hold more than 300 vehicles on almost five acres with more than 10,000 square feet inside the showroom.

Meanwhile, America’s Car-Mart also announced the opening of a new dealership located in Pryor, Okla. 

This addition brings Car-Mart’s dealership count to 140 and will be the 26th dealership in Oklahoma and the first new dealership opening for fiscal year 2019.

The company said the dealership will be managed by Jason Henson. 

“This will be the fourth dealership managed by Mr. Henson as we look to expand our number of customers served by our top performing general managers,” company officials said.
