There's a new used car sales center in Kennett Square.DeFilippo Brothers Carsmart Kennett Square will officially open its doors on Saturday at the site of the old D'Ambrosio's Chrysler/Jeep at 632 W. State St.
Owner Matt DeFillipo said he was attracted to the location because he lives nearby in New Garden Township. Currently, he and his brother have operated another sales center in Prospect Park for 18 years and will continue to do so.
DeFillipo said his company prides itself in giving sub-and "sub-sub-"prime financing to anyone who can afford a car. Their credit number is not important, he said.
"Customers pay weekly on a two-year note," he said. "That builds credit toward buying a new car for some," he said.
DeFillipo said most recently they have been operating out of a shop on Cypress Street, but decided to open up in a more visible location.
Even before the official opening, DeFillipo said, "I'm amazed at the traffic. A lot of people are coming in already."
The dealership is open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed Sunday.
