100% driven by the sun

Today we "flipped the switch" to solar power.

We were lucky enough to be joined by several local leaders including Ken Colburn of the Maine Climate Council, Brian Hubbell of the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future, and local State Representative Nicole Grohoski.

Did you know we will buy your car? Like, without you having to trade it in to purchase something else. It's true! It's like a reverse dealership! You bring your car to us, and we'll buy it. 

We will look at any make, any model, any mileage and make you an offer! Even if there's a payoff!

A special review

We get a lot of 5-star google reviews. We don't talk about it a lot, because, honestly, if you want to know how we're doing there, we know you'll go look. But we recently got one that touched us a lot. Our whole team pulled together for these guests, and it feels really nice to have been able to help.

From Susan:

Outstanding, personalized service, exceeding all expectations from Stanley Subaru! While vacationing in Maine my husband and I were in a horrific car accident that totaled our Forester.

Spreading love and warmth in our community

Yesterday we took advantage of an excuse to visit some of our favorite people in our community: we delivered 84 large, sealed (and comfy!) blankets to the Mary Dow Center at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital and to the Beth C Wright Cancer Resource Center for the patients and heapings of pink Hershey Kisses for the staff.

Jack's cross-country Crosstrek trek, part one!

Jack is taking a six-week sojourn across the country (across the top, down the side, across the bottom, and up the other side back to us) before he rejoins us in our reconditioning department. On his way, he'll be sharing the scenes seen along the way!

Honestly, it sounds like an amazing way to spend half a summer. We're both grateful and envious of the pictures he's sending our way!

Lookin' a little different

Jeans for a Cause

You might see something on Fridays you might not expect from the crew at Stanley Subaru this year: denim. We are reviving Jeans for a Cause. Our team is invited to make a cash donation to a community fund. After donating, our employees can show off their comfort and support for our community by wearing jeans the Friday after their donation.

And the community fund? Each quarter, a local nonprofit will benefit the total collected!

So, don't be surprised to find jeans this year at Stanley Subaru. It's just another part of our commitment to our community!
