Corrected: Payless Opens New Sales and Rental Franchise in Orlando Suburb

Payless Car Sales Inc. is opening its newest franchise in the Orlando, Fla. suburb of Sanford. The location will serve as both a Payless Car Sales and Payless Car Rental operation. The opening for the sales operation took place on Presidents Day, Feb. 20, according to a recent company press release. The rental portion is planned to open in March. 

The dealership is the first Payless store to open under the new “Sales, Service and Rental” platform. It is also the first of five Payless locations planned for Orlando and the surrounding metropolitan area.

The store is billed as central Florida’s “New Car Alternative,” selling pre-owned vehicles under the recently introduced Payless Assurance Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program, which provides inspection, a free vehicle history report, limited warranty, travel breakdown protection, rental car coverage and roadside assistance.

“I am thrilled that our Payless store is officially open for business,” said Scott Dance, the franchise owner and operating principle. “Al Fishalow, our general manager here at Dance Automotive, and his staff of car business professionals have all the right pieces in place to make our Payless franchise successful.”

Corrected: Previously the article's headline incorrectly stated the location of the new franchise. We apologize for this error.
