Holiday Schedule

     With the 4th of July coming up, I wanted to throw up a quick post about Holiday schedules.  At our dealership, we have always just had Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years off for Holidays. I know of other dealerships that are closed on various holidays that we are open on.
