We always knew there had to be a better way to buy used cars. One that would make the process easy and fun. So we created CarMax, and we’ve been changing the way America buys cars since we opened our first store in Richmond, Virginia in 1993.  Through hard work and dedication, we’ve grown from that one store in Richmond to more than 150 stores across the country.  CarMax is listed on the FORTUNE® 500 list, and we’ve been named one of FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.”
