We want the customer to train us how to help him or her.  I also want to remind the region that we have a robust inventory, and a state-of-art facility that is easily accessible to Shenandoah Valley residents off of US 81, 340, 211, or 522... I extend a personal invitation to visit Luray and join the Marlow Ford family of customers, where you will have a hassle free, fun, and the most pleasurable sales and service experience," concluded Ben.  Mr. Saadatmand is married with five children, he is a long-time resident of Harrisonburg, and his favorite part about the community is that "the people are truly friendly."
