ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan car dealership owner will turn over his business to new owners later this month, but there was something he had to do first.
Howard Cooper gave all 89 employees $1,000 for every year they worked at the Howard Cooper Import Center in Ann Arbor.
The 83-year-old says that he just wanted to thank them and hopes "it makes a difference in their lives". Cooper sold the dealership in April.
