Nation's biggest Chevy dealer closes all dealerships

Recommended Posts

Laramie GM Auto Center is the largest dealership in Wyoming, selling everything except SAAB, Hummer, and Saturn. They keep pouring money into the dealership like they are rich. Some of it could be from their large used car inventory, but they APPEAR to be doing pretty well considering...

Do they have much competition from other GM dealers? If they are the only game in town and for miles around, they probably are doing fairly well... that's how I remember the Chevy/Pontiac/Buick/Olds/Cadillac/GMC dealer in Key West when I was a teenager--their nearest competing GM dealer was well over 100 miles away. They are still around, except they have Hummer and Saturn now in place of Olds.

One of things I've seen with closures in large metro areas like Phoenix is an oversaturation of dealers.. several stores of a given major brand within a 20 mile radius..

In Chi-town, Chevy dealers within 5-10 miles of each other, would say 'we'll beat any dealer's price on Cavalier, Corsica, truck, etc'.

And yeah, one could get good purchase price. BUT, they get buyers with Doc fees, clearcoat, pinstripes, and Gap insurance. In other words, they'd grind you to get add ons. So, customer really doesnt get better price.
