POINT PLEASANT — There’s a new option for purchasing a vehicle close to home in Mason County.
Newer model vehicles with under 60,000 miles are available for purchase at the recently opened used car lot, Integrity Used Autos. The lot is located on Fairgrounds Road just north of Point Pleasant.
Kevin Edwards, Brent Williamson, and Pete Somerville opened the car lot in August. At all times Edwards, Williamson, and Somerville said they strive to keep 10 to 12 leased vehicles on their lot which they acquire throughout Ohio and West Virginia. If they do not have a certain type of vehicle a customer is looking for, then they will seek out to find that specific vehicle for them and have it sent to their car lot.
The building of their establishment is family-owned by Williamson and was an available space to have after the closing of an upholstery store in May. Between the three gentlemen, their experience in sales and customer service equal out to 40 years. Though the trio divides the work equally among themselves, Edwards and Williamson focus mainly on the financing of the business and Somerville focuses on floor sales.
Somerville and Edwards were both employees at the Norris Northup Dodge dealership in Gallipolis, Ohio for over 10 years. Edwards and Williamson shared they have had a following of their past customers.
“Local people are a main reason why we are here,” Williamson said.
According to Edwards and Williamson, they are glad to help their past customers and are ready to meet the needs of their present and future customers.
“Hopefully we can get people respectable cars at great prices,” Edwards said.
Integrity Used Autos is currently offering a deal now until Jan. 2, a gift from under their Christmas tree to any customer that purchases a vehicle. Find them on Facebook or call 304-675-5018 for more information. Visit their website at http://integrityusedautos.com/.
