Harper family, passed down from generation to generation and it shows,” said Warren King, president of the Better Business Bureau of Western PA. “C. Harper illuminates the importance of corporations with a conscience. This award celebrates them as a marketplace role model.

“We try to always do things the right way. We are honored and deeply appreciative of this recognition by the Better Business Bureau. My mother always taught us to treat others as you want to be treated and we live by that rule,” said Casey Harper, founder of C. Harper Auto Group. “We teach our kids that young. This was just how we were brought up, and we hold to this belief as we continue to grow, and we are not done growing.”
