About Us

James E. Lewis, Inc., which is our formal name, actually began in 1954 as a feed-bagging business. It was the brainchild of James Edward Lewis, or Jim, and his wife Betty Jo Lewis. They had great success in this industry, but as bulk-bins started to pop up around the area, Jim & Betty knew it was time to explore other opportunities. Jim then partnered with two close friends to begin a new car dealership in the area but soon became anxious to start a used car business with his wife. He felt that people would be extremely interested in purchasing a used car that was “like-new”. Thus in 1958 Jim & Betty decided their small hometown of Willards would be a great place to begin a small used car business selling QUALITY cars. Gradually their customer base began to grow and Jim & Betty were able to add on to both their office and repair shop to accommodate their ever-growing clientele. As time passed, Jim & Betty had two kids who have always shown a great interest in their business: Brenda & James Edward Lewis II, or Eddie. Eddie went to work with Jim & Betty and soon became a regular fixture at the business along with his wife Sharon.

Jim & Betty have both moved on to Heaven, but Eddie, Sharon, and their family have kept going with the car business and haven’t lost a step. In fact, Eddie & Sharon's son James Edward Lewis III, or Jamie, is now an integral part of the business. We still have a large selection of QUALITY cars just like always, but as time has passed we have also become the ONLY choice for trucks, vans, and suv’s. Much like Jim & Betty, Eddie & Sharon credit their LOYAL customers for allowing the Lewis family to serve them. Also, Jim, Betty, Eddie, & Sharon have been blessed with long-tenured, hard-working, reliable employees throughout the years. So come give us a try and help us make 50 more years of history!!!
