Town & Country Pre-Owned Auto Mall is at 400 First Ave., S., Nitro, at the foot of the Nitro-St. Albans Bridge.

Marino and his son, Chris, invite back-to-school car shoppers to stop and see what’s available at Town & Country, especially in the dealership’s popular Budget Corral, where vehicles start at $4,990 and up.

“We have popularly priced vehicles for boys and girls heading back to college – we’ve got them,” said Henry Marino, who has more than 50 years of experience in the retail automotive industry.

The Budget Corral is a great place to start for cost-conscious parents, or for anyone needing safe, reliable transportation at an affordable price.

The Budget Corral “is a good thing for parents wanting to buy their kids something to go to school in, and that’s not going to cost them an arm and leg,” Marino said. “Something they can depend on to get them through college.”

Every vehicle offered for sale at Town & Country Pre-Owned Auto Mall is checked out thoroughly by the dealership’s in-house service department. Town & Country is one of the few used car dealerships that maintains its own service department.

“They’re checked out and have CarFaxs with them,” he said. “They go through service before they go on the lot.”

CarFax reports help take some of the anxiety out of buying a used vehicle by revealing its ownership history, service records and whether or not it’s been in an accident.

With his years of experience, Marino has a knowledgeable eye when it comes to cars. He always strives to maintain a quality inventory.

“We’re always looking for inventory, and we try to get the best.”

Town & Country Pre-Owned Auto Mall also buys cars.

“We buy them off the streets. You can call here, and we’ll buy your cars, trucks and SUVs. We get a lot from trades, too,” he said.

Marino said trucks continue to sell well at Town & Country.

“It’s mainly been trucks; it’s what everyone seems to be looking for. That and SUVs.”

Marino said major manufacturers, such as Ford, are beginning to concentrate on trucks and SUVs, putting sedans on the back burner.

And pickup trucks today are multi-use vehicles that appeal to just about everyone.

“Today, they make a double-cab, they make a Crew Cab – you can buy a Crew Cab truck, and it does everything a family needs. It’s a true, four-door truck. And trucks are real comfortable, and gas mileage is good on them.”

Town & Country Pre-Owned Auto Mall usually has a great selection of used trucks from Chevrolet, Ford, Ram and other manufacturers.

Along with used truck sales, Marino said Town & Country is noted for its selection of pre-owned Jeeps, such as Wranglers, Cherokees and Grand Cherokees.

“We sell a lot of Jeep products,” Marino said.

When autumn and winter get closer, Marino said Town & Country would be the place to visit for SUVs and other four-wheel-drive vehicles that do well in snow.

“We’re big in four-wheel drives and all-wheel-drives.”

Marino said if Town & Country Pre-Owned Auto Mall doesn’t have the vehicle a customer wants, the dealership will try to find it.

“If we don’t have it, we’ll get it for you. We’ll locate whatever you want,” he said.

Customers can shop with confidence at Town & Country Pre-Owned Auto Mall. Used vehicles today are much more reliable than in years past, Marino said.

And many of the vehicles offered for sale at Town & Country still have factory warranties left on them.

“I’d say 80 percent of our inventory has factory warranties left on them,” he said.
