2016 is coming to a close. Some of you may well be saying "good riddance" as you take stock of the year that's just passed. While we usually use this space to give you tips to get more out of your luxury car, or to encourage you to come in for service, we wanted to take this opportunity to say something that's really important to all of us here at Byers Imports: "Thank you."
We've served Columbus, OH, Gahanna, OH, and Westerville, OH since 1897. That's 119 Christmases, tens of thousands of customers, thousands of cars sold, and thousands more serviced. We don't know the numbers offhand, mostly because they're not the important part. What we're most proud of is the relationships we've built over the years. We've served multiple generations from the same families, with kids buying their fist cars here the same as their grandparents did. Every day we get the chance to start that cycle all over again. There aren't many dealerships who can say that.
So sure, we're proud of the luxury cars we sell; we wouldn't have stayed in business for so long otherwise. But this is a labor of love for us. We hope we're lucky enough to still serve the public from our location at 401 North Hamilton Road for another 120 years (just imagine what the cars will look like then!).
It's safe to say that 2016 has been a roller coaster ride for many people. At the same time, however, we're well aware of how lucky we are for the opportunities you've given us and the trust you've placed in us. In case we don't say it often enough, thank you. You've made 2016 a great year for the Byers Imports family, and our hope for you is that that your year in 2017 will be safe, joyous, and prosperous.
