Another dealer bites the dust...

Recommended Posts

Appears GM is serious about improving their dealerships. This particular dealer was good sales/service, but crummy facility and location. These guys started with Olds in the 40s I think...however, they've also had Honda, Subaru, etc since the 70s...

NEW BRITAIN, Connecticut - Schaller Auto World has sold its last Cadillac and Chevrolet.

General Motors has pulled out of Schaller after the dealer's failure to acquire the VFW property on Veterans Drive.

Art Schaller Jr. told The Herald his inventory of Chevrolets and Cadillacs has been sold, many of the vehicles back to the company.

"We'll still have a presence here in the city," said Schaller, whose family has been selling cars in the city for generations. "Everyone knows that GM is facing hard times."

After 50 or so years, what was once the biggest Cadillac dealer in Canada is closing its doors in the next couple weeks. Downtown real estate is so hot that the owners couldn't resist the offer to build another 50 storey condo on their lot.

GM is down 5 dealers in the greater Toronto area in the past couple years. Rumours are, another 5 are going to go.

That is the point: I count 22 Toyota/Lexus dealers in the Greater Toronto Area (pop. about 5 million) and 38-39 GM dealers - yet we are selling the same number of vehicles. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that those numbers aren't sustainable.

i know that dealerships are constantly being told to update and if they don't i know that gm puts some pressure on them and does have some right to pull their dealer rights.
