Notice:

GMI staff is in the process of compiling a NEW list of the dealership closings. This list will ONLY have dealerships that are CONFIRMED to be closing. Confirmation means that there is a third party NEWS ARTICLE stating the dealership name and location with regards to it closing!

Please do not bother posting a dealership closing unless you can CONFIRM the closing through a third party source or privately with the GMI staff (such as a copy of the letter with dealership name or other applicable information).

Also, please do not bother posting that this list is wrong. Nowhere have we stated that it is the "OFFICIAL" list. I'll deem it inaccurate right now. The NEW LIST will be the official.

Thanks,

Nsap
GMI Editor

Dealer Employees: Is GM Closing Your Dealership? Post it Here.

Replaced with a master running list. Please know that this list is completely unofficial and has been gathered mostly from media reports or from postings from employees.

If you are posting that a dealership in your area has announced it's on the closing list please offer the following information in the following format for expediency sake.

Dealership Name, Brands offered, City, State, Zip.

Please make sure to capitalize the dealers name as well as the brands sold and location information. It helps with formating and legibility.

Thank you for your cooperation.

The List... (so far).

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

Looks like we're put off again.

Automotive News-General Motors CEO Fritz Henderson says the automaker will start notifying it's dealers "a bit later" this week on it's plan to eliminate about 2700 dealerships by 2010. "That specific plain is being finalized here early this week, and we'll begin notifying dealers later this week", Henderson told reporters during a weekly conference call this morning. 10:39am U.S. ET/May 11.

GM can't even pass out pink slips on time. Holy crap.

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

Why don't they just tell us who is staying and who is going and be done with it. Everyone is just on pins and needles to see if they have a job or should start looking for a new one. I work for a dealership and everyone is in a daze. Not good for business.

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

Look at it this way ! How many Dealers do you really think are going to tell there employees?
I wouldn't would you? These Dealers are going to want to try to make some money as little as it may be these days until the end.If word gets out to soon it will only make there Business much worse.This is why hopefully someone will leak a full list out.Then we will all know and not depend on some one(Dealer) who most likely is not going to say anything until the bitter end !!!!!!!!!

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

Don't kid yourself.

The dealers will find out who is and isn't going to be in business. Those who will stay in business will spread the word on those who won't trying to get more business for themselves.

Might as well get it out in the open right now.

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

I hope the list comes out soon. Every day is a bad day according to the media. We should all stop watching the news and reading the newspapers and maybe they will get the hint. LET's start talking about good things.

The Dealers will be worried about being paid any GM Incentives. They are going to say "Let concentrate on the used lot Boy's"

The "good things" are years away, I am afraid.

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

Our dealership isn't going anywhere but the other two stores have good reason to be stressed out. There is a great deal of debate around town about which of them on it's way out. Frankly, it's a tough call. The lowest volume store is also the oldest building on the smallest lot and it's already going to be loseing it's Hummer Franchise but it's a Wheaton store and a lot of guys around here are not sure if GM will pull the plug forceably against any of Wheaton's stores.
The other one is independantly owned, on a much larger piece of land, it's building is the newer one of the two Chevy stores and they have been doing renos all winter to update it further. Combine that with the fact that they have been selling almost 2:1 more then Wheaton's Chevy dealership...

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

Right now all we can do is wait. Gm is very tight lipped on the list of dealerships that they are going to terminate. All we can do is speculate right now on who is staying and who is going. Our logic is not always GM'S logic. If somebody has the list let's see it.

This is Regina.
Capital(PBGC) used to have the oldest building of the GM stores in town followed by Wheaton & RMP(chev only) and when they had that facility they spent a ton of money on all of GM's updates a few years ago(the "tower" and stuff like that). Wheaton was the last of the three to update to the new look and since then, Capital has built a whole new facility that is the largest GM dealership in the country, the new body shop is bigger then the whole old dealership. RMP is currently doing renos to what was a reasonable new and well updated store already. Wheaton just built a giant "H" out front about a year after they got their Hummer franchise, the store is nice enough but the lot is small and they frequantly have to store their inventory across the street in a Zellers parking lot.

For location, RPM is just outside the city on the south side, Capital is just on the edge of the city and due to construction will soon be slightly inside the city on the northwest side and Wheaton is completely within the city limits on the northside.

For volume, Capital has it hands down(and have for the last 10 years) followed consistantly by RMP with Wheaton in the back by a fair margin.

I don't know how it's all going to shake down but in a city of less than 200,000 people, 3 GM stores is not going to be in the cards.

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

On one of the business shows this morning someone said that 50% of Chrysler's dealerships account for 90% of their sales. Are GM dealerships the same way? If so, maybe there should be some consolidation.

I think I heard somewhere that about 500 or GM stores sell less than 50 cars a year. All of these stores are likely to be shut down.

here in midland with around 50k people there is 3 GM stores. A buick jeep store. A pontiac cadillac GMC store and a Chevy store. I would bet that at the end of this the Buick Jeep dealer will no longer sell new vehicles. The jeep will go to the local dodge dealer and the buick will go to the Cadillac GMC dealer.

Re: Dealership Closing List (letters)

My local Chevy (of all GM brands) store, Kelley Chevrolet of Hallandale Beach, closed down just days ago.

This article gives a good perspective of the dealerships situation in my neck of the woods.

They have a strong presence in South Broward county selling mostly Toyota and Honda products. I believe they have a Pontiac GMC Buick store but I may be wrong. Their dealerships are very high end and with very good service. they don't promote themselves as a group though.
