GM Dealer Closing List: 1,100 General Motors Dealerships
General Motors, in its continued attempt to become solvent, is closing 1,100 dealerships, and has already begun to alert those affected. There is no public list of the closures yet. This announcement comes on the heels of Chrysler's closure announcement yesterday.
We'll post a link to the full dealer closing list as it becomes available.
Last month, GM had announced that it would be closing 2,600 dealerships overall by 2010, and this is the first round of those closures.
While these closures will give some relief to GM, their effect on the dealerships' communities will not be so positive, as many find themselves out of work.
GM spokeswoman Susan Garontakos said the company will not make public a list of dealers to be cut, leaving the decision to release information to individual business owners.
