AWARDED BY THE GLENVIEW CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
The Glenview Chamber of Commerce announced that Jennings Chevrolet & Volkswagen has been named our 2009 Business of the Year. This award was given to Jennings Chevrolet & Volkswagen in recognition of their active role as a member of both the Glenview Chamber and the Glenview Community.
It all started in 1958 when Jim’s father was the general manager of a Chevrolet dealership on the south side. He had an application in to be a dealer when one became available. The dealer in Glenview, who was in his early thirties, died in an automobile accident. Jim’s dad was offered the Glenview franchise and accepted. He commuted daily from the south side for about nine months and then purchased a house in Glenview. Jim was in second grade at the time and the dealership was located at the present location of NAPA Glenbrook Auto Parts. Jim has worked in the business his whole life including washing cars and cleaning out every parts bin and started full time in 1974, with his brother John joining the company in 1983. In 1986 they acquired the Volkswagen franchise and later that year Jim’s father passed away. They moved into their present location in 1967. Jennings Chevrolet will celebrate its 55th year next February and Jennings Volkswagen will celebrate its 27th year next March. As one nomination form stated, “ It is well known that Jennings Chevrolet and Volkswagen is a very charitable organization in the Glenview community.
For the month of January Jennings Chevrolet & Volkswagen will donate a portion of each New and Used vehicles sold for North Shore United Way.
This is our 15th year that we have participated in this fundraising campaign.

Dear Mr. Jennings,
I wanted to thank you for helping us secure a new van for our program.
We are delighted with our purchase and really appreciate the support you provided in ensuring that the price was affordable and that we got the vehicle we needed.
Having transportation for our programs is vital as it allows our participants to enjoy activities and events out in their local community. Our new vehicle was welcomed by all of our participants as we are now able to go on more outings as well as travel in style!
Your colleagues, Ray Morris and Jerry Perberg were extremely helpful and we worked closely with Jerry in making all the necessary arrangement s to purchase the van. Jerry is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. He made sure everything went smoothly and we really appreciated his help.
Everyone who I met at your dealership was very welcoming and helpful and took a genuine interest in what our place does. I know that this type of atmosphere comes from the top down, and I am inspired to help ensure that I and all our staff build and maintain the same type of commitment to the highest quality service that is clearly evident at your dealership.
I attact a thank you note from our participants together with a picture of our new purchase.
