Year-End Events at Busam Automotive

Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the beginning of your holiday season. It is always an interesting time at the dealership ~ between keeping the lot clear of snow and a busy service center ensure there are plenty of early mornings and late nights.

I wanted to take a few minutes and let you know about some great sales events going on at Busam Subaru and Busam Nissan.

Busam Subaru’s Donation to SPCA Cincinnati Goes to the Dogs (and cats)

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with Jim Retzlaff and Kelly Burke from SPCA Cincinnati to donate $500 from the Love a Pet adoption month at Busam Subaru.

Here is a great picture of Jim, Kelly and Bentley ~


I want to thank Jim and Kelly for taking the time out their busy day to meet with me ~ and I was even able to get a quick video clip of Jim.

A Great Month at Busam Subaru!

As I write this post and look out my window, the snow is really coming down! This is the fitting time to write this post, because it marks the end of November, and the beginning of Winter.

This past month was Love a Pet Month at Busam Subaru (#loveapet). We partnered with 4 local animal rescues and pledged to donate $100 for each new Subaru sold in November.


We are SO EXCITED to report we (with our customer’s help) raised $2,000!!! I will be visiting each of the shelters and delivering their checks in the coming weeks.

Make sure to check back on the blog, as well as our Facebook page and Twitter handle to catch all the fun videos and photos that are sure to come!

Even though Love a Pet at Busam Subaru is over, the “Share the Love” event is still in full force at the dealership. Subaru USA is donating $250 to one of five participating organizations (ASPCA is an option!) for every new Subaru sold.

So, if you’re in the market for a vehicle, and would like to help a good cause, stop by and take care of both at the same time!

Greetings from Busam Automotive. Did you know that today (Nov. 12) is Chicken Soup for the Soul Day?! According to the creators of the book series of the same name, Chicken Soup for the Soul Day was created as “…. a celebration of who you are, where you’ve been, where you’re going, and who you will be thankful to when you get there!”

At Busam Automotive we are always here to help you get “where you’re going”!

If that is interesting enough, here are a few pieces of  history from This Day in History since 1909

November 7, 1910 – The first air freight shipment (from Dayton, Ohio, to Columbus, Ohio) is undertaken by the Wright Brothers and department store owner Max Moorehouse.

November 11, 1921 – The Tomb of the Unknowns is dedicated by US President Warren G. Harding at Arlington National Cemetery.

I hope everyone had another great week! Everything is great over here. Love a Pet Month at Busam Subaru is barking and purring right along. We have 6 Subaru’s sold so far this month, which equals $600 for local animal rescues.

Our Nissan store is also rockin’ and rollin’ with the Year End Sales Event. Please feel free to contact us for the latest and greatest Nissan products.

The Suzuki store is also excited to show off its brand new website with video walk-arounds and some other pretty awesome features. Check it out today!

Sunday was a great day! Love a Pet at Busam Subaru was a lot of fun! The sun was shining, dogs were barking, and kitties were looking cute. Our 4 participating rescues (SPCA Cincinnati, The League for Animal Welfare, Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, and Ohio Pug Rescue) were out in force with loads of great adoptable animals.

Check out some of these good looking pups!

The best story from the day was Larry. A couple came in to check out the adoptable pups and fell in love! It was pretty incredible to see an animal find a new home. Larry might be one of the cutest dogs I have ever seen, what do you think?!


Remember that this is Love a Pet month at Busam Subaru ~ We are donating $100 to the participating rescue organizations for each new Subaru sold in November! So tell everyone to come in, get an awesome new vehicle and help find some animals new homes!

Don’t forget to check in on Foursquare and Tweet when you get to the dealership. Use the hashtag #loveapet to help spread the word!

A big thank you to Linda Stout of Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, Rebecca Porter of The League for Animal Welfare, Jennifer Schneider of SPCA Cincinnati, and Teresa Livesay of Ohio Pug Rescue. These four people are heroes for doing everything they can to help animals find happy homes! They are all an integral part of helping us Love a Pet at Busam Subaru.
