Nice customer comment about “to the point” style

I thought I  would share this nice comment sent to the owner of South Easton Motor Sales, an independent used car dealer in Easton Mass.,  where I work part-time.

Just want to tell you to that I really appreciate finding a dealership that delivers all they say and do not just try whatever it takes to lure you to the lot. Your ‘to the point’ style is exactly the type of business I like to give my money to. Something that is surprisingly hard to do most of the time.  Thanks again!!
