It was a dark and stormy car sale

Spring Car Sale - Dave secures the tent

Last weekend’s spring vehicle sale, held April 24 and 25 at Sears in Jackson, was super-successful. We kept $1 million in the community, and almost 100 members were able to finance quality vehicles from six local dealerships.

But then Saturday, the storms hit.

Dave Lewis (above), our ATM specialist, worked with several other employees to secure our tents before the flash thunderstorms hit.

We evacuated the tents twice, with employees and shoppers heading into Sears to stay dry (above).

All the action was captured in photos, and you can see them at our Flickr photo gallery.

Thanks to the entire community for supporting the sale. Everyone who financed a vehicle that weekend took advantage of our big loan rebate – plus a trip to our famous cash machine.

See you at our next sale in September!

Let it snow.

Jackson, MI snow storm

Here’s the scene on Friday, Dec. 19 at 9 a.m. looking down East Michigan Ave. in Jackson.

Lots of schools closed, lots of plow trucks out, and a weirdly empty parking lot at the American 1 Home Office.

“All the smart folks stayed home,” one co-worker said. That could be.

Be safe out there!
