CRESTVIEW — Award Chevrolet's name may have changed, but the dealership's goal of exemplary customer service remains, according to the new owner.


Allen Turner, a Gulf Breeze resident and owner of Allen Turner Hyundai in Pensacola, said customers can still expect no pushy or deceptive sales tactics from Allen Turner Chevrolet, the business' new name since Aug. 1.

Crestview's staff already has a “great reputation” for being straight-forward with customers, Turner said, adding that he will ensure such ethical treatment stays intact. 

“Allen Turner’s business model is built on a foundation of honesty and transparency, a model that’s earned the loyalty of many customers at Allen Turner Hyundai — and will earn the loyalty of many more at Allen Turner Chevrolet,” a news release stated.

General manager Wayne McCranie, who has overseen day-to-day operations for the past 11 years, will continue supervising 35 employees, and the dealership will continue to offer automotive maintenance services, according to a news release.
