Thrifty Car Sales Opens in Bixby

Thrifty Car Sales, a subsidiary of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. , is growing in its own backyard, adding a location in Bixby, to its network of franchised pre-owned vehicle dealerships.

Two local businessmen, Leonard McCullough and Mike Willis, have assembled a dealer investment group that has purchased the license to open Thrifty Car Sales locations throughout the Tulsa metropolitan area. Starting with a location at 14780 S. Memorial in Bixby, they plan to expand to a network of five Thrifty Car Sales locations by creating synergy in inventory optimization, personnel, marketing and other resources. The location of the four additional stores — planned over the next three to five years — has not yet been determined.

Thrifty Car Sales in Bixby will open with four employees, with plans to expand to 12-15 employees within a year. Located on two acres, the facility is 5,500 square feet with six service bays and a large showroom. They will open with an inventory of 50-100 cars, with plans to expand to 200. The store will carry a variety of vehicles in every category, with the typical vehicle being six years old or newer, and less than 80,000 miles, with most vehicles qualifying for the Thrifty Certified Program.
