Area residents wishing to purchase a pre-owned vehicle now have another option to do so without leaving town.
Autos 4 You recently opened at 729 S. Sam Houston Blvd. in the location previously occupied by C Bar K Meats.
Co-owner Paul Jordan and his brother began the dealership after running a lot in Rolla for the past 20 years.
Jordan, who lives in Rolla and has 25 years experience in the car sales field, said he believes Houston should be a good location for the business.
“We think it’s a good community that will grow,” he said. “It has a good hub, with the hospital, the Walmart and Highway 63. We think it’s an ideal place for us.”
Jordan said the decision to open the business came after a bit of a twist of fate.
“We really had no plans of coming to Houston,” Jordan said. “I just happened to be in the area one day and saw the building. I kind of drove around a little more and thought how this just might work.
We couldn’t ask for a better location.”
Jordan said Autos 4 You will usually carry about 25 vehicles.
“And we can help people with credit issues reestablish their credit,” he said. “We’ve been doing this a long time, so we know what it takes to stay in business. We feel like you have to be reputable, and we realize that when someone invests in us that we need to take an investment in them.”
The inventory at Autos 4 You figures to be clean and straight, for the most part, and all vehicles are inspected before being offered, he said.
Jordan said he feels the business will fit in well with others already here.
“We don’t want to take away from anybody else’s business in town, and we feel like what we’re doing is totally different from what everybody else is doing,” he said. “We think we can add that to the community; we’re glad to be a part of this community and we look forward to being here a long time.”
Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.Saturday. Call (417) 967-0245.
