Long-standing Chevrolet dealer to shut down by 2010
In May, 2009, General Motors notified 1,100 dealerships, including George Moore Chevrolet, that it was terminating its franchise agreements as part of its bankruptcy restructuring process. The manufacturer also cut its ties with Crest Chevrolet in the Arlington area.
Like George Moore Chevrolet, most of those franchise contracts will expire in 2010. Until then, those dealerships can still sell new GM vehicles but not with a factory-backed warranty. Since the change, customers who had bought new cars from the Beaches dealership had to drive roughly 17 miles into Jacksonville to get them serviced, Moore said.
They were left with the option of selling another brand or staying in business as an independent car lot or a repair facility.
Moore said he appealed GM’s decision, but that the corporation didn’t like the location and that without the ability to order new cars and trucks, it didn’t make sense to stay open.
“It’s very tough to put in words,” he said. “We provided a valuable service for the Beaches and the surrounding area.”
Previously it was Jack Lynch Chevrolet, Sutherlin Chevrolet, Platt Chevrolet, Thor Chevrolet (owned by Coppedge)?
