Wilmington, NC- Although it is February in Wilmington, North Carolina it feels like spring. Which means it is time to load up the all new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and get out on the beach to enjoy this beautiful “winter weather” this weekend! See how we used the Silverado 1500 Trail Boss LT this week with our full gallery!
Let’s face it: Pets are family, and we want to make sure they always feel loved and appreciated. That’s why it’s important to pamper your cat around the house and take your dog on adventures outside of the house.
Many of our employees at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet are dog parents. According to them, these are the best places to take your dog in Wilmington:
- Wilmington Dog Park at Empie: Dogs are social creatures, so it’s important to let them play with other dogs under your supervision at a dog park. The Wilmington Dog Park is a great place to do just that. Set on two acres, this off-leash park has two distinct play areas—one for large dogs and one for small dogs.
- Abbey Nature Trail: Dogs love walks, especially in new places with exciting smells. Take your pooch out to Abbey Nature Trail along Highway 17 North. Set on 67 acres, this nature preserve offers up a 2.4-mile trail that takes you through the woods and over the mill pond.
- Entropy Boat Rentals: Does your dog love to swim? Consider this unique experience with the pet-friendly Entropy Boat Rentals, where you can ferry your dog over to a pet-friendly beach.
For more suggestions on ways to keep your pet happy in Wilmington, contact us at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet. We’ll also be happy to recommend the top pet-friendly vehicles we have in our inventory if you’re in need of a new ride.
Wilmington is a place of movers and shakers. Whether you’re exhausted from a long day of work (or have just woken up and are staring down one of those long days) or need a pick-me-up after a fun day exploring the city with your dog, a cup of coffee should do the trick. These are the four best coffee shops in Wilmington:
- Grinders Caffé: This café is located at 5032 Wrightsville Avenue and is well-known for offering a different coffee flavor each day. We recommend an iced coffee—they include iced coffee cubes!
- Luna Caffé: Tucked away at 604 Castle Street, this little café is celebrated for its delicious espresso and is easy to spot from the road—just look for the bold blue bricks.
- Folks Café: This local café has done so well for itself that it has opened two locations—one is at 1201 Princess Street and the other is at 706 North 4th Beans are organic, fair trade, and roasted in-house.
- Bitty and Beau’s Coffee: Whether you prefer your beverages cold or hot, this quality joint offers a range of teas, coffees, and smoothies to quench your thirst.
Contact us here at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet for more suggestions of where to get a cup of java in the area. We’ll be more than happy to recommend our favorites.
No matter what branch of the armed forces you or a loved one has served in, Chevrolet is proud to honor that immense sacrifice with the Chevy Military Discounts program. This program is offered by the manufacturer and is currently available to Active Duty members, National Guard Members, Reservists, Veterans within one year of discharge date, and retirees of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. It also applies to any spouses of eligible military members.
Different vehicles in the Chevy lineup have different discounts in proportion to their MSRPs. Once you have picked the vehicle that is best for your needs, visit the official General Motors Military Discount page to get an authorization number. Then bring that number to Jeff Gordon Chevrolet and we’ll help you get your perfect ride and drive away happy.
Here at Jeff Gordon Chevy, we are so proud and honored to serve veterans and retirees of America’s armed forces. Without you, America wouldn’t be the free country it is today. If you have any more questions about the Chevy Military Discounts, check out our answers to some of the most common queries here, or feel free to talk to us at the dealership.
When you think of heading out on a vacation, the famous beaches of Florida and other southern states probably come to mind. However, as any true North Carolinian knows, there are plenty of beaches to enjoy here in the Tar Heel State. Take a look at some of the best options on the Atlantic Seaboard to find the beach that’s perfect for your next day in the sun.
Bald Head Island: Since Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is in Wilmington, we had to include the nearby Bald Head Island. The island is only accessible by a ferry from Southport, but the beach and its turtle residents make it all worth it.
Carova Beach: If turtles aren’t your thing, consider heading to Carova Beach. It’s reportedly one of the most isolated beaches of the Outer Banks and its lack of paved roads mean you need a 4×4 to get there. Not only will you be far from the big groups of Outer Banks tourists, you’ll have the chance to see wild mustangs that are known to roam the beach.
Shackleford Banks: Shackleford Banks is in Carteret County and it’s another good beach for a possible sighting of wild horses, but this area is most well-known for its seashells and being a part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore. If you visit in the summer, you might be able to see the loggerhead sea turtles make their nests and lay eggs before heading back out into the water.
Stop by Jeff Gordon Chevrolet today to check out all our beach-worthy vehicles!
Party With A Purpose – Join us for a Free Ladies Night at Jeff Gordon Chevy!
Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is joining forces with local Mary Kay Future Sales Director Brandy Herring to produce “Team Up For Women”, a summer event aimed to raise funds and awareness for the Mary Kay Foundation. Herring has been working directly with Jeff Gordon Chevrolet to conceptualize rewarding programs for not only her team members but many other women in our local community. “My deepest calling is to make a positive difference for one more woman every day,” said Herring. “I hope by reaching out to women in our local community we will increase awareness and encourage women to get regular mammograms and help end cancers affecting women.”
The “Team Up For Women” event will include vendor tables from local female owned businesses, mocktails, raffles and fun for everyone. Vendors will include Massage Envy, Painting with a Twist, Tropical Smoothie, Charm Salon, Soul Shoetique, Lizard Lane Soaps, Little Dipper, and more! Gift bags will also be given to the first 25 guests to arrive, and all funds raised will be donated to the Mary Kay Foundation.
In 2015 The Mary Kay Foundation℠ gave almost $5 million to the causes of funding research and education programs for cancers that affect women and programs committed to ending violence against women. Each year Mary Kay Inc. gives a generous donation to The Mary Kay Foundation℠ as a result of the Beauty That Counts® campaign.

Two 2015 Corvette Z06s roll off Jeff Gordon Chevrolet’s lot in unison, and it was… [wait for it]
There’s something about the 7th generation (C7) Chevrolet Corvette that makes it just overall wonderful. Or maybe, it’s everything. Yeah… it’s definitely everything. At Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, NC, most of us wonder if we’ll ever get tired of looking at America’s iconic supercar, but we still keep finding ourselves awestruck by the ultimate driving machine every time we get a new shipment. We also get really excited for our customers who come to pick theirs up for the first time… It’s kind of a big deal! But this time, it was even more exciting to see not one, but TWO 2015 Corvette Z06s (one coupe, one convertible, both torch red) at the same time roll off the lot in unison. So luckily, we were able to get a chance to document the event for everyone to enjoy.
