Turner Chevy brings familiar faces to Crosby

Robert Turner Owner

CROSBY – Some familiar faces are returning to the area to “make customers comfortable buying GM products and used cars and getting service locally.”

New ownership, new dealership, new management that have many familiar faces will be found at Turner Chevrolet.

Robert Turner, owner of John Keating Chevrolet and John Keating Subaru across the street from each other in Nederland, Texas has purchased the local Chevrolet dealership and says, “We are people people. We are here in the community to try and do some good. We appreciate the support of the entire community.

If they are interested in General Motors vehicles, we will make it convenient for them to own one. We invite them to come on by and see us. I’ve been doing this for 35 years, mostly for General Motors. I started doing this in 1976. The pervious three years I had spent in the insurance industry. Since then it has all been automobiles. It is important for people to know that, I’ve wrenched, I’ve sold, I’ve financed, I’ve managed. Now I’m just a janitor, cleaning up everybody elses mess. This is a pretty big one, but I am cleaning it up.”

Turner’s business philosophy may be summed up in the phrase, “ The people make the difference.”

Apparently, that philosophy influenced his employing David Mendez for General Sales Manager. David is known for having been the General Manager at John Keating Chevrolet before the dealership was sold.

“We’d love for the community to come out, shake our hand and meet us.” Mendez says.

Mendez is well known in the area for his involvement in the community, like Crosby Fair and Rodeo and charities for the last 20 years, and in taking care of customers expresses his philosophy as “I want customers for life.”

“When you walk into Turner Chevrolet you are going to see a familiar face,” says Mendez, “I want to keep your business by taking care of you. Certainly in our service department we want you to feel comfortable sending your husband, your wife and your kids in whether it is to buy a part or get your oil changed. We are here for you during the sale, after the sale, we are going to be here for you always. There are big plans for this dealership. The phoenix rising from the ashes is my analogy for this dealership.”

Some customers have already expressed their enthusiasm for the change. Charles Reeves says, “David Mendez, the new General Sales Manager of Turner Chevorlet in Crosby, Texas, has built his distinguished career on one motto ‘customers for life.’ His customer service is the best I’ve ever experienced. I can’t wait to see what unfolds in this new chapter of his life at Turner Chevrolet.”

“My vision is to give ‘knock your socks’ off service, create a culture that sincerely takes care of the community. We want to earn your trust again and again. We can’t wait to help you with all of your needs. I plan to be here for many more years.” says Mendez that has shown his sincere love for Crosby and the surrounding communities by efforts like buying livestock at the Crosby Fair & Rodeo Livestock Auction with his own personal cash.
