The retail industry is having a moment. Whether it's clothes, jewelry or toilet paper, nearly everything and anything can be found for purchase online.
Buying cars isn't immune from the trend toward online sales, and eCommerce platform company Carvana is leading the charge.
This week, Carvana announced its expansion to its first market in the state of Missouri, St. Louis, which brings its total number of cities up to 24. The approximately 4 million people living in the St. Louis area will now have access to either next-day new vehicle delivery or direct pickup from Carvana's vending machine station.
Carvana's founder and CEO, Ernie Garcia, commented on the newly launched area in a release. He said, "We're so pleased the Gateway City is our gateway into the Midwest. Launching our free delivery services in St. Louis allows us to give nearly 4 million consumers an alternative to the traditional dealership experience."
