CarBiz Plan Taking Shape

SARASOTA, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2007) - CarBiz Inc. (OTCBB:CBZFF) announced that its Illinois locations have begun full operation of sales and collections. CarBiz will operate six car stores across Illinois in East Peoria, Moline, Loves Park, Rockford, Pekin and Dekalb. This marks the third state to receive their dealer license in three weeks after the company made similar announcements in Ohio and Kentucky.

CarBiz became the fourth largest 'Buy Here - Pay Here" business in the US following a major acquisition last month. The deal included 26 dealerships in seven Midwestern states including Kentucky and Ohio. The five remaining states are Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

CarBiz CEO Carl Ritter expects the remaining facilities to be operational very soon. He said, "We are excited about the opportunity as our plan is starting to take shape."
