Kelly Johnson and her husband Steve came to Runde Auto Group after hearing plenty of praise for salesperson Jake Meyer from their relatives.
“If he can please my in-laws, trust me,” Kelly said about Jake. “My brother-in-law just bragged him up to the high heavens.”
The two, who live in Galena, Ill., leased a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country 4WD Crew Cab for their business.
They own Main Event Hair Salon, in Galena, and Little Keg, a convenience store in Elizabeth, Ill. The truck will mostly be used for work with the convenience store.
“We have to do a lot of hauling, purchasing product for re-sale, and delivering product occasionally,” Steve said.
The two were looking at a Cadillac SUV at a different dealership, but it came down to the experience of driving the vehicle.
“This rides so much nicer,” Kelly said.
She was particular about the truck’s leather interior, as well as getting running boards, mudflaps and a hard Tonneau cover.
“I said as long as I get all the bells and whistles I want, we are good to go,” she said. “I liked the fact that the seating is great. You have so much more legroom in this truck. I’m really impressed with it.”
The couple picked up the truck Wednesday afternoon at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, Ill. Kelly was happy to see how easy the buying process was at Runde Auto Group.
“Jake’s follow-through was great,” she said. “It was just clean and quick.”
