    CarMax, which revolutionized the used-car business 25 years ago, is revving up its future

    Twenty-five years ago this week, a new store on West Broad Street in Henrico County offered consumers a radically different, no-haggle way to buy used cars. CarMax was born.

  • CarMax product designers are innovative problem solvers who spend their days building amazing customer experiences. They are also driven to share their talent to help nonprofit organizations serve those in need. Inspired by the mission of Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now), our product designers recently guided the organization through an interactive session focused on increasing the impact of their online resources. We can’t wait to see how they put these discoveries to work to increase engagement and support for their valuable mission. #carmaxdiscoveryjam #productdesign

  • Our approach to volunteering is simple: We care about what our associates care about.
