LUKE’S MARKET MESSAGE

Luke Pidgeon

May 22, 2015

This past week’s sale was different than usual due to several variables. El Paso lost a local icon in the car industry with the passing of Mr. Dick Poe. While this fact had everyone in a somber mode, it also brought smiles to our faces as we reflected on all he contributed to here in our border town. Mr. Poe will be missed. That, coupled with dealers getting set for 3-day Memorial Weekend sales and kids getting out of school for the summer seemed to have just about everyone feeling a bit misplaced.

Next week, we have a great fleet/lease lineup and as always, some of the Best of the Southwest Dealer consignment. We’re also pleased to announce that our first Avis Budget Group sale will be June 10th, and our Father’s Day promotional event sale follows on the 17th. Please mark your calendars!

Memorial Day is one of the most important holidays we recognize, in my opinion. It gives us a chance to remember our fallen soldiers and their families, who have paid the ultimate price for the freedom we all enjoy. So if you get the chance to personally thank a service person yourself this weekend, take it – I know I will.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend and we look forward to seeing you next week in the lanes or online.
