Albemarle county leaders are excited about the new Carmax dealership on Pantops.

Members from the Board of Supervisors and Chamber of Commerce attended the official ribbon cutting ceremony today.

They believe Carmax will bring more money into our area and are pleased to see a fortune 500 company here in Charlottesville.

"I'm extremely excited. This is a very important market for us. It's close to our hometown in Richmond. It's also the smallest format story we've ever opened and it will enable us to go into other markets in the United States that are similar to this", said Tom Folliard, President and CEO of Carmax.

As Carmax grows, they hope to not only be a major source of revenue for the county, but a major employer as well.
