CarMax Inc., the nation’s largest retailer of used cars, has opened its first store in the Buffalo area. CarMax Buffalo is located at 1881 Niagara Falls Blvd., Amherst, and has the capacity to stock approximately 140 used vehicles of nearly every make and model.

CarMax customers can also request transfers of almost any vehicle to this store from other CarMax locations throughout the country.

In celebration of the Buffalo store opening, CarMax and The CarMax Foundation are awarding $12,500 in donations and grants over the next two years to the Food Bank of Western New York. The donation for this organization came at the recommendation of CarMax associates employed at the new Buffalo store.

Additionally, CarMax donated an Imagination Playground valued at more than $15,000 to Metro Community Development Corp., a nonprofit agency that serves low-income youth and families at the Delavan Grider Community Center. This donation is in partnership with KaBOOM! to make play more accessible to children and families. Imagination Playgrounds are innovative, loose-parts playgrounds that engage kids in creative play that is physically challenging and collaborative.

“It’s an honor to work for a company that gives back and encourages CarMax associates to get involved in our community,” said Bryan Ababurko, location general manager of CarMax Buffalo. “We’ve been looking forward to opening our first Buffalo store and introducing customers here to the CarMax difference.”

Approximately 90 percent of CarMax purchasers start on CarMax.com or the CarMax mobile app. Customers can browse CarMax’s nationwide inventory of approximately 50,000 vehicles.

CarMax is the nation’s largest retailer of used cars and operates nearly 200 stores in 41 states nationwide. For more information, access the CarMax website at www.carmax.com.
