We can safely say that 2016 certainly had its ups and downs – more downs than ups, depending on who you talk to – but for Lester Glenn Auto Group, it was all ups! While it seems that every year gets better than the last, this year was a little bit extra special for us. Check out Lester Glenn’s Top 5 Moments of 2016!
In March of 2016, Lester Glenn Auto Group officially celebrated our 60th anniversary of being in business. Starting out with our Buick store back in 1956, we’ve grown into a family of seven dealerships and thirteen different automotive brands. It’s been an awesome ride filled with the best people – both customers and employees alike. We wouldn’t be where we are without the support and loyalty of those around us. We can’t wait to see what the next 60 years brings!
2.) FIAT Joins the Lester Glenn Family
While it didn’t happen until the later part of 2016, FIAT officially joined our family of dealerships in August, bringing us to a total of thirteen brands. After a lot of moving around, FIAT permanently joined the US market as recently as 2009 and we anticipate a long, successful relationship ahead of us! In case you were wondering: starting MSRPs for our FIAT lineup range from $16,995 to $31,800 and we have something for everyone!
3.) Lester Glenn Ford & Hyundai Earn some Accolades
Back in October, The Asbury Park Press released the winners of their 2016 Reader’s Choice Contest. Lester Glenn Hyundai and Ford both placed in the Top 3 dealerships in Monmouth and Ocean Counties and we couldn’t be more proud! As always, this is something we couldn’t have achieved without the support of our wonderful customers.
If you were at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March – and you should’ve been – you might remember our shamrock-dusted Silverado. We were able to experience the Seaside spirit in its truest form and that’s all we could ask for. Nobody does St. Patty’s Day quite like the Jersey Shore! Thousands of people lined the streets in nothing but bright green – and it was awesome. Look for us in 2017! We’ll save a Jolly Rancher for you 😉
5.) Lester Glenn Chevrolet Makes its Donation to the American Cancer Society
Every October, Lester Glenn Chevrolet participates in Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we help to raise money in that time frame that is ultimately donated to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. While we love working together towards such a great cause, it truly reaches a new level when we present the check to Making Strides. Just a few weeks ago, our Chevy team got together along with LG President Adam Kraushaar and Senior Community Manager of Making Strides Amanda Barrett and we donated a total of $8,520. It was an awesome moment and we’re so proud of the small difference we can make in our community.
Even though 2016 has gotten a bad reputation over the last few months, we have to say it was pretty good to us. The future has never been brighter and we can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for us!
