We can say without a shadow of a doubt that 2018 was an incredibly awesome year for Lester Glenn Auto Group! With two brand new buildings, a lot of personal achievements among our team and so many awesome community events, we are extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished over the last twelve months. Whether you’re just joining us or you’ve been with us for awhile, you’ll see that it’s been an exciting ride. Here are our top five most notable events for Lester Glenn Auto Group in 2018!
1.) The Grand Opening of Lester Glenn Chevrolet of Freehold
One of our much anticipated events was the grand opening of our second Chevrolet location in Monmouth County – Lester Glenn Chevrolet of Freehold. We acquired the property nearly two years ago and have been at work ever since. We tore down the previous building and started from the ground up; it wasn’t easy, but it has been so worth it. Lester Glenn Chevrolet of Freehold officially opened its doors in October of 2018 and it’s been awesome ever since. The addition of our Freehold location marks the continuation of our quest into Monmouth County, with Lester Glenn Ford being the inaugural location. We’re looking very forward to developing a wonderful relationship with Monmouth County’s residents and we can’t wait to see what the future holds! You can find Lester Glenn Chevrolet of Freehold at 3712 Route 9 South, Freehold, NJ 07728.
2.) Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT Moved to its New Location
As of November of 2018, Lester Glenn Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT moved to its new location on Route 37 West…and the move has been the best thing that’s ever happened to us! If you’re familiar with our previous Chrysler showroom, you’ll remember that it was quite small and the parking situation was dicey at best. The interior decor was a little dated and left something to be desired. Needless to say, the upgrade was a smart and necessary move! The process was most certainly painstaking but it has been completely worth it. Our brand new, state of the art Service Center boasts 23 service bays, four express service bays and a car wash…just to name a few things. We also have a new, in-store charging station so you can be sure that you’ll be connected for as long as you need. Our standard complimentary coffee and donuts will still be part of your experience…with a lot more room to stretch out! If you haven’t already paid us a visit, now is the time! You can find us at 1199 Route 37 W, Toms River, NJ 08755. We’ll see you there!
3.) Lester Glenn Auto Group Celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Along with showing our pride for the entire month of October, an event we look forward to every year is the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Point Pleasant, NJ. We host a social media campaign throughout October to raise money – $5 for every new Facebook page “like” or Instagram “follow” – which goes directly to Making Strides. Additionally, we host a dress down day for our employees that allows them to wear jeans and a specially designed t-shirt for a $10 donation. Finally, on the Saturday before Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, our entire auto group donated $100 for every vehicle sold. To top it all off, we led the Making Strides walk with a specialized Chevrolet Silverado. We are always incredibly proud and humbled to be able to contribute to such a wonderful cause. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
4.) Lester Glenn Subaru Hosted a Pet Adoption Event
To show our support for the Subaru Loves Pets Initiative back in October, Lester Glenn Subaru hosted a Pet Adoption Event and Fundraiser in partnership with the Associated Humane Society of New Jersey! We all thought it would be a great idea to have a great group of animals on site for our customers to interact with and hopefully adopt. For anyone that adopted a pet at the event, Lester Glenn Subaru vowed to cover the adoption fee. On top of that, for every test drive of a new Subaru vehicle, we donated $50 to the Associated Humane Society. It was a fun and interesting way to raise awareness about the dozens of shelter animals that are looking for homes every single day. By showcasing them at our dealership, we hoped to facilitate adoptions and find forever families for everyone there. We had a great turnout and we definitely hope to do it again next year!
5.) Lester Glenn Hyundai Hosts Food Donation Drive
In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, Lester Glenn Hyundai hosted a food drive in our showroom. Customers were encouraged to bring in two bags of nonperishable food items that we would eventually distribute to local area food banks. Our goal was to directly help those in our surrounding communities during the holiday season. We can say with confidence that the food drive was a resounding success and we were able to donate 26 boxes of groceries to seven local food banks. It was the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit and none of it would have been possible without the support of our amazing customers. We’re hoping next year is even bigger!
These are just a few of our proud moments at Lester Glenn Auto Group this year. We are always so incredibly thankful for our amazing staff, our tremendous community, and of course for our loyal and supportive customers. This is all a clear team effort and we are blessed with the best one out there. Here’s to an unbelievable 2018 and an even brighter 2019!
