Although the Weiss family is celebrating 25 years of owning and operating Heritage Chevrolet Buick GMC in Lugoff, the real story started 54 years ago in 1961. That’s when Julius Love opened a dealership in Sumter, according to his grandchildren, Wayne A. Weiss and Mindy Watkins. Weiss heads the dealership; Watkins, his sister, is the dealership’s office manager.
