WHAT TO DO?
Let’s say you just closed a big sale, or accomplished a big goal in your life, and decided to celebrate by treating yourself to a new dress.
You go to Dillard’s or Macy’s and find their best brand, a nice one you like, costs $300 and that’s about your budget.
But you look down the street and they’ve got a Chanel dress, timeless and elegant, that was $600 and has been marked down to $300. They just happen to have your size in stock.
Now you’ve got a decision to make. Which makes the most sense? Which will give you the most pleasure to own?
That’s the conundrum we offer at the Gallery. We’ve got a whole row of Mercedes-Benz vehicles that have been returned from two-year leases. Look new, feel new, and in warranty that sell for roughly half the going new price.
Most Mercedes we stock sold new around $60k and we sell just a hair over $30k. That’s roughly the price of a first line American car.
Someone likely paid $3000 down, then $1000 per month for 24 months to lease this car.
The car, through this process is depreciated $27000 from new. VOILA, that $60k car becomes a $33k car. Something you never believed you could afford is now affordable. Something you always thought would be out of reach, is suddenly in reach.

My name is Robby Melton. I’m old enough to qualify for a “senior coke” at McDonalds and don’t have to work anymore, but find myself here on the lot most days because that’s where the cars are. That advertising slogan, “We sell cars for fun,” is not far off-base for my brother and me.
