Starting April 1, shoppers at Houston, Dallas, Phoenix and Oklahoma City Wal-Marts will be able to choose, finance and insure a car at “CarSaver Center” kiosks.
The partnership marks Wal-Mart’s initiation into automotive sales. Their business model is based on based on Costco’s auto program, which CarSaver CEO and co-founder Sean Wolfington ran more than two decades ago.
It is “the right way to sell cars — with a fair, transparent price, presented by brands the customer trusts most,” Wolfington said in an interview with Automotive News, which first reported on the partnership.
If successful, CarSaver’s service will be expanded to additional markets with the goal of being nationwide within two years.
