Business of the Month

Clinkscales Chevrolet

The Belton Alliance is proud to present Clinkscales Chevrolet with this month’s Business of the Month recognition. 

Since cars were first brought to the square of Belton, SC, there has been a dealership ready to serve the needs of our community.  First Ford, then Dodge/Plymouth, and then in the 1940’s, Chevrolet hit the local market.

In 1957, Will Clinkscales, Jr.,  purchased the Chevrolet dealership and branded it with their surname, to ensure the quality and reputation expected among its customers.

Billy Clinkscales took over the business at the death of his father in August  1972.  Fresh out of school, Billy had no car selling experience, but fortunately, he was able to rely on a group of loyal, experienced staff.  Without this core group of individuals in the early 1970’s, there probably would not be a Clinkscales Chevrolet today.

Billy is still active in the business; however, his son Michael Clinkscales took over as Dealer Principal in 2010 and along with his sister Beth Clinkscales Scott manages Clinkscales Chevrolet today with a staff of 18 who are committed to serving the community with the highest level of customer satisfaction.

“One of the things we are proudest of is that over the 61 years of doing business, six different employees have worked at the dealership in excess of 40 years,” stated Billy Clinkscales.

Customer oriented service permeates everything they do.  With a convenient location, top class service, quality standards, personal approach, transparent pricing, and commitment to community, Clinkscales Chevrolet is the dealership of choice for many in our area.

If you haven’t checked them out yet, drop by their location at 1515 Anderson Street.   With their friendly sales staff and a wide array of vehicle choices, you’ll easily fulfill their business motto:  “No one walks away from Clinkscales Chevrolet.”
