We are especially excited to partner with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, a wonderful organization who is working hard to fight hunger in communities affected by the pandemic.


Jim Ellis Automotive Group is launching a group-wide At-Home Memorial Day Savings Event - a comprehensive digital event where customers can shop online for their new vehicle. From May 20, 2020 to May 25, 2020, all 18 Jim Ellis family-owned and operated dealerships will offer their Memorial Day sales online via the Jim Ellis Express Way. The group will also be donating a portion of every sale of all new or pre-owned vehicles to the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB).

In response to the challenges that COVID-19 has brought to automotive industry and its customers, the company is offering the unique opportunity for those in Atlanta and surrounding areas to shop for their new car virtually. This platform allows new car prospects to take advantage of the significant holiday savings, while providing the means to practice social distancing by shopping from home. With the Jim Ellis Express Way, prospective customers can compare and choose from thousands of vehicles, schedule at-home test drives, configure financing, have their vehicles delivered to their house and more. This is especially advantageous for those who are currently homebound or do not wish to shop in-store.

The onset of the current pandemic has created severe food shortages for communities throughout Georgia, and with over 30 million Americans unemployed, food security will continue to be one of the greatest challenges faced in the upcoming months. ACFB has seen a 30-40% increase in demand for food assistance since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The proceeds of the Jim Ellis At-Home Memorial Day Sales Event will greatly help to support ACFB’s emergency food distributions and the 1 in 7 Georgians who are food insecure.

“This campaign is just one small way we can do our part as an organization to help out those in need”, said Stacey Ellis-Hodges, Vice President of the Jim Ellis Automotive Group. “With our At-Home Memorial Day Savings Event, we can serve the mobility needs of Atlanta, safeguard our customers and allow them the opportunity to give back while they shop. We are especially excited to partner with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, a wonderful organization who is working hard to fight hunger in communities affected by the pandemic.”

There are 14 brands under the tutelage of Jim Ellis Automotive Group: Alfa Romeo, Audi, Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, Genesis, Hyundai, Kia, Maserati, Mazda, Porsche, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo. During the At-Home Memorial Day Savings Event, each respective dealership will offer special incentives for their new and pre-owned car inventory.
