CROSBY – A local Chevrolet dealership has established itself as one that believes in giving back to the community in a way that benefits the community at large.

It began with a simple concept from the local family owner, Robert Turner: “Our People Make the Difference.” Robert Turner made his home in Dallas, owner/operating a couple of dealerships before purchasing John Keating Chevrolet in Crosby. He knew he needed an involved sales manager and when one of the leading applicants had an e-mail address listed as crosbychevyman@aol.com, he figured that was a good clue. The dealership at the corner of FM 2100 and US 90 established themselves as being far better than their predecessor at getting involved with the community and local people. Mr. Turner made a diligent search for the right people to run this dealership and made their motto, “Our People Make the Difference.”
