ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many car dealerships are struggling to survive during the recession but some Albany dealers say they're getting a bit of a stimulus lately.

Dealerships usually see an upswing in business when tax season rolls around and people get refunds. Billy Chambers says this year is no exception.

They welcome a boost after months of slow sales.

"Our business is off 40 percent now. In October and November it was off in the 60 percent range but we're thankful for what we have because from what my friends tell me in the Atlanta area, it's terrible," said Chambers.

Unfortunately, Chambers says things are slowing down again since the beginning of tax season. It's also tougher to get financing for some people so they've had to add more finance companies to their roster.
