"For 31 years, Car-Mart has provided quality vehicles, affordable payment terms, and excellent service while expanding throughout  the South-Central United States.

"We now have 117 dealerships in nine states. Car-Mart will continue to focus on increasing sales volumes at our existing dealerships and at the same time add great new locations," said Jeff Williams, Chief Financial Officer. "Oxford represents our third new dealership for fiscal 2013 and our current plans are to open an additional seven between now and the end of the current fiscal year. Our solid financial results, strong balance sheet and competitive strengths will continue to allow us to provide the best possible service to our 55,000+ active customers and to future customers we will gain as we grow.  We continue to expect to open additional dealerships at an approximate 10% annual rate beyond fiscal 2013."
