Cincinnati, OH

ProsThey are closed for Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving....those are the highlights.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to trying to be better than the traditional dealers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
