Nine Nebraska Chrysler dealerships are part of a list set to be cut-off by the stuggling auto manufacturer.
In a motion filed in bankruptcy court, Chrysler says it wants to
lose 789 dealerships by June 9. The company says many of the dealers’ sales are too low — with only about half of the dealers accounting for about 90 percent of Chrysler’s U.S. sales. Dealers learned yesterday morning through UPS letters if they will remain open.
The cuts represent about 25% of all Chrysler Dealerships across the country. The complete list of Nebraska cuts includes:
Russwood Chrysler in Lincoln
Lithia Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge in Omaha
Jerry Spady Jeep-Eagle in Hastings
Subway Motors in Milford
Kobza Motors in David City
Team Jeep in Scottsbluff
Faws Garage in Arapahoe
West Point Auto Plaza in West Point
Meyer-Earp Auto Center in Auburn
Senator Ben Nelson and others across the country had urged the President’s Auto Task Force to step in and stop the closures as part of the government restructing process for Chrysler.
General Motors is also considering massive nationwide closures as part of their restructuring process.
