CarMax Opens Largest Multi-Purpose Location Featured

CarMax, Inc. celebrated the grand opening of its Murrieta store, the company’s largest multi-purpose location on the West Coast.
CarMax Murrieta will serve as a reconditioning hub that will feed inventory to several of the company’s stores in southern California. The location will also house CarMax’s first, and largest, four-lane auction facility on the West Coast.
In addition to production and auctions services, the 35-acre property has a separate building for selling used cars to the general public. The facility is located at 25560 Madison Avenue and has the capacity to stock up to 400 vehicles at a given time. The opening of this new location has brought more than 250 jobs to Murrieta.
In celebration of the Murrieta store opening, CarMax donated $5,000 to Michelle’s Place, a local nonprofit organization that supports women and their families with cancer care. CarMax associates recently volunteered with Michelle’s Place and nominated the organization to receive the donation.
CarMax also announced today that The CarMax Foundation will be providing a $10,000 grant to the Boys & Girls Club in Murrieta to support 100 local underserved youth. CarMax is also awarding a $10,000 grant to the Special Olympics Southern California to help fund sports equipment, coaching materials and transportation of youth athletes.
