RICHMOND, Va., June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CarLotz (NASDAQ: LOTZ), the nation’s largest consignment-to-retail used vehicle marketplace, announced today it will open a hub to serve the St. Louis metro area. Located just outside of St. Louis at 1807 W Highway 50 in Fairview Heights, Illinois, the hub will provide CarLotz’s guests in the greater St. Louis market with easy access to its service, value and inventory. The hub is expected to open later this year.
“St. Louis is known for being the Gateway to the West – we are thrilled to have this vibrant community be a part of our journey,” said Michael Bor, Co-Founder and CEO of CarLotz. “Our continued expansion will allow even more guests to experience the benefits that come with buying and selling through our unique consignment model,” Bor continued. “Those real benefits often generate, on average, up to $1,000 or more in value for both sellers of vehicles and buyers of vehicles. We look forward to welcoming our St. Louis-area guests and becoming a part of the community.”
CarLotz is on a mission to create the world’s greatest vehicle buying and selling experience for consumers and commercial consigners.
