Hamilton County Trustee Bill Hullander was among special friends who stopped by Monday to wish Jim Gentry well as he is retiring after a long career as a car dealer.

Mr. Gentry has sold cars in the South Pittsburg area for nearly 70 years.  Gentry Chevrolet, Buick, GMC is most recognized from Interstate 24 by the giant American Flag, one of the largest in the South.

Also on hand was Justin Tyson who is purchasing the dealership. Mr. Tyson owns several dealerships in the Carolinas. 

Mr. Gentry went around the dealership Monday thanking the many employees who have worked for him over the many years. 

Mr. Gentry said it was a bittersweet day in his life but he planned to spend a lot of time with his family.  

The new dealership will be known as Riverside Chevrolet, Buick, GMC.
