CarMax Moves into New Market Featured

CarMax Inc. celebrated the grand opening of its first store in Michigan, located in Kentwood at 4431 28th Street.  The Kentwood store will have the capacity to stock approximately 200 used vehicles. During the grand opening celebration, CarMax announced that The CarMax Foundation will be providing a $10,000 grant to the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids. The grant will help fund the YMCA Veggie Van, which is West Michigan’s only mobile farmers market. The Veggie Van provides the opportunity for local farmers to sell produce directly to residents in low food access neighborhoods. Kentwood CarMax associates nominated the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids to receive the grant.
