Pendleton - A used car lot has closed in Pendleton after the owner said it wasn’t making the money it needed to justify the overhead.
“The bottom line is, there wasn’t a need for a pre-owned location in Pendleton,” owner Randy Stoops said.
Stoops said all inventory and personnel were moved back to the Muncie location, which has been in business for 25 years.
The Pendleton Stoops location was open for two years.
“We loved the community and loved being involved,” Stoops said. “It was a great relationship; we just didn’t get enough volume to make it work, so we decided to get it all back under one roof.”
