Company announces contribution to local nonprofit
RICHMOND, Virginia (August 28, 2019) - CarMax, Inc. (NYSE: KMX), the nation's largest retailer of used cars, has opened a new store in Scottsdale, AZ; the company's third store in the Phoenix area and fourth store in the state. CarMax Scottsdale is located at 15350 North Hayden Road and has the capacity to stock approximately 140 used vehicles of nearly every make and model. CarMax customers can also request transfers of almost any vehicle to this store from other CarMax locations throughout the country.
In celebration of the Scottsdale store opening, The CarMax Foundation is awarding a $5,000 grant to Scottsdale Community Partners. This organization provides emergency assistance to Scottsdale youth, families, and seniors who find themselves in crisis situations. The donation for this organization came at the recommendation of the CarMax Scottsdale associates.
'CarMax has been a proud member of the Tolleson and Gilbert communities for more than a decade and we're excited to expand our presence in the Phoenix region,' said Paul Ostler, location general manager of CarMax Scottsdale. 'Our new Scottsdale location will serve as an additional option for our customers looking to buy or sell a car with the exceptional customer experience they know they can expect with CarMax.'

Since that time, CarMax has continued to revolutionize the experience through customer-focused technology innovations. Approximately 90% of CarMax purchasers start on CarMax.com or the CarMax mobile app. Customers can browse CarMax's nationwide inventory of approximately 50,000 vehicles, hold a vehicle for a test drive, schedule an appraisal, and even get pre-qualified for financing before visiting the store. CarMax stands behind their vehicles with a 7-Day Money-Back Guarantee and a limited warranty that covers a vehicle's major systems for 90 days or 4,000 miles, whichever comes first.
CarMax, the nation's largest retailer of used cars, revolutionized the automotive retail industry by driving integrity, honesty and transparency in every interaction.
