Harvey’s celebrates 60 years in business

George M. Harvey, Sr. and Harvey’s in Radford were honored earlier today during a celebration marking his and the dealership’s 60 years in business.

Here, Mr. Harvey prepares to cut a ceremonial ribbon during the event, which included dozens of local businesspeople, customers, local officials and others who participated to honor Harvey’s and the dealership’s milestone.

Mr. Harvey noted during the ceremony that even today, a age 91, he still enjoys getting out of bed each day and coming to the dealership.

“That’s because of the people I work with and the customers,” he said. “Ya’ll made it special all these years and I just want to say ‘thank you’ to everybody who is here today. I hope God will bless you as much as he has me, and I say thank you.”

Radford Mayor David Horton said, “Radford has been blessed all these years to have George Harvey as part of its community.”
