Chrysler to Cut 800 Stores
The American automaker Chrysler will be eliminating 800 dealerships including three dealerships in North Central Florida but Gainesville Dodge was spared.
Employees at the Dodge Dealership say their sales were high enough to keep the dealership off the cut list.
The dealerships that are affected are smaller ones with low sales according the Chrysler.
Chrysler wrote in court papers that there are too many stores competing with each other.
The three stores that are affected are Duval Motors and Palm Chrysler in Gainesville and Rallye Dodge in Ocala.
Chrysler has been operating in bankruptcy protection since April 30. The dealers affected must be closed by June 9.
