Chrysler closing nearly 800 dealerships

| | Comments (0) | Retweet

In the wake of its bankruptcy filing, Chrysler has sent shutdown notices to 789 dealers around the United States. The outlets, which are typically well-protected from forced closures, can be closed since Chrysler has declared bankruptcy. The 789 stores are roughly 25 percent of Chrysler's total; the resulting network of around 2300 pales in comparison to the 6000-plus locations open at the company's peak.

General Motors, which is still debating a bankruptcy filing, has announced plans to close 2600 dealerships but details have not been disclosed.
