This is the project I've been working on for the past 3 months or so. Never good to see stuff like this when you're about 40% done with a project. I have a feeling it will work itself out though. Coincidently (seriously, totally unrelated) I also got told today I'm moving on to another project, this one a $150mil hospital in nearby Springfield.

"Elia Imler, a CarMax spokeswoman, said today Aug. 7 that completion of the West Carrollton store will be pushed back to 2010."

less people are buying cars, thats probably a smart move on their part. hopefully this means they're being smart about not expanding coming into a downturn, which means they'll be around to build more in the future

CarMax just built a couple of stores here in Chucktown. Word was they shelved plans for a third store because of the downturn in car sales.

Emails flying everywhere today but it looks like we will be unaffected. CarMax fiscal year is March (currently in FY2009 for them) and our grand opening was/is scheduled for mid February '09 so if they delay the G.O. 2 weeks it will open in their FY2010 (March '09).

Usually used cars do well in slow economic times so I guess this shows how real or serious the situation is and is becoming.
