LUMBERTON — A local auto dealership recently received the Carolinas Independent Auto Dealers Association’s top award.

M&M Auto, located at 2595 E. Fifth St. in Lumberton, was awarded the Quality Dealers of the Year Award. The dealership was selected based on a variety of factors, such as contributions to the auto industry in the Carolinas and nationally and community involvement.

The dealership is owned by brothers Chris Moore and Jerry Padrick Jr.

“Jerry and Chris are an inspiration to all dealerships across the Carolinas and the Country,” said John Brown, executive director of Carolinas Independent Auto Dealers Association. “M&M Auto walks the walk. It is truly a pleasure to recognize dealers in the Carolinas who achieve greatness. I look forward to having M&M Auto compete for the Nation Quality Dealer of the Year award in June 2018.”

“It is an honor to be recognized by one of the top IADA’s in the country,” Padrick said. “We are very humble people and we just do the right thing for our customers. We surround ourselves with the best employees and we learn from others in the community. We just treat others like we would want to be treated when you buy a car.”

The National Quality Dealer of the Year Award will be presented at the annual meeting of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association in June in Orlando.
