Carmax Coming to Lynchburg

Lynchburg, VA - New jobs are coming to Lynchburg.

CarMax announced Tuesday they will open near Wards Crossing West next summer.

The Richmond-based company will hire 100 people across the state in both full and part-time positions.

The company will only accept online applications.

Region 2000 is excited, saying it only shows that Lynchburg's economy is getting better and better.

"They see it as a good place to do business. This is following on the heels of Fresh Market's investing and Petco so you are starting to see the Lynchburg market recover that retailers are now looking at this market as a good place to do business," said Bryan David, Executive Director for Region 2000.

David also says Carmax will be good competition for other auto retailers in the region.
