Holiday weekend gives a boost to auto sales

(Continued)

Dealers said sales started slowly, but they did well after Thanksgiving, boosting their monthly totals over November of last year.

“Black Friday did give us a lift,” said Bill Perkins, president of two Chevrolet dealerships in the Detroit suburbs of Taylor and Eastpointe.

Normally November is a lackluster month for auto sales. But automakers, particularly Ford and General Motors, offered deals this year that brought out buyers, according to the Kelley Blue Book auto website.
