November 01, 2012 // Franchising.com // DURHAM, N.C. – Durham-area residents have another option for purchasing used cars now that a new J.D. Byrider location is open at 3601 Durham Chapel Hill Blvd. The 13,000 square-foot location offers used car sales, financing and a customer service center. The new store is the fifth dealership in North Carolina.
The new location is the second for franchisee Chris Thomas, who also owns a J.D. Byrider dealership in Raleigh. “I am looking forward to helping Durham residents with less-than-perfect credit get a quality used car,” said Thomas. “Each of our customers will have access to our 24-month/24,000-mile warranty, affordable payments and great customer service all from one location.”
