“Despite the economy being anyone’s guess these days, with GDP down and durable goods orders off, we see consumer confidence looking strong and shoppers turning into buyers, and the proof of this is the results we saw across the industry with May sales,” said Ron Stettner, VP, Sales for MNAO. “At Mazda, Memorial Day was huge for us, and we feared a slowdown toward the end of the month that never happened.”
