Had to figure this was coming, hopefully everyone can get their cars before dealers start closing up shop. From what I was told Mews in Ottawa should be OK, even if they have to close one branch they can combine it with one of their other locations. I think you will see more of the rural dealers getting hit on this.

i would love to see a list of all the dealerships closing. I'm sure if I asked mine, they would just lie and say that everything is o.k. It would be really nice to know which ones are gonna be closing by the end of the year....

If your car is at 3000 and above, or even 1100, if your dealer was in fact closing, wouldnt the orders just be moved to another dealership?
Wouldnt want that to happen to myself, never know if the dealer will charge a mark up afterward or change the negotiated price

One of two ( 1 Chevy /1 Pontiac) will close in Kamloops and become GM.

Saturn will be gone too.

One (Dodge/Jeep ) will combine with Chrysler.

3 gone in a town of 80,000

I'd be very surprised if the Mews family can keep all 3 Chevy dealerships.

Ottawa:

Belanger closes

Surgenors, Mews, Myers, Chevy West, Tubman, Jack May, Boulevard stay open.

I think the 3 remaining dealers scheduled to close are SUnrise, Demers and Lachapelle but that is just a guess based on market share and location.

Where did you get this info from?
I confirmed, with my salesmanager, today that Leggat Chev will NOT be closing
It doesn't suprise me, and it makes a lot of scence, to start closing the dealerships with Pontiac products, since that line will be gone come 2010.

I truly never figured out how West York stayed open after all these years, when they're area counterparts, Grant Brown Pontiac, and Belmont Chev, closed up decades ago.

The dealer in my hometown got the axe I guess. Only 800 people in the town so I half-expected it to go but you never want to see that happen.
I've also heard that the Saskatoon and Regina dealers are all ok.

So sad. My family bought a 1969 Beaumont from Plaza on Dufferin St. in Downsview and a 1981 Grand Prix from Addison on Bay St. in Toronto. A relative sourced my 1999 Grand Am for me from Hawley in Mississauga, and a 1998 Sunfire and a 2003 Vibe also from Hawley, I think. My dad had a 1962 Pontiac Laurentian as his first car before getting married. We also occasionally brought our cars in for service at Pine View in Vaughan. Now this confirms Plaza, Hawley, and Pine View are all history. What the heck is going on? :(
