ANOTHER FORD DEALER IN TROUBLE

Sadly...it looks like another Western Massachusetts Ford Dealership is on the way out. I heard...on good authority...that employees were informed this morning that the end is near. I personally know the owner of the dealership...he's a class individual...I wish him and his employees nothing but the best!!!

Sorry...it's a bad link. The dealership is Northampton Ford...Ford has gotten an injunction preventing them from selling any of their vehicles unless Ford is paid up front. Their inventory amounts to approximately $2.5 million...and...they owe Ford approximately $533,000 for vehicles they have sold and not paid for.

A sad time indeed!!!

bass3006 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just read that Rodman Ford of Foxboro is selling their property and moving a mile down the road to a smaller piece of land.

This is getting ridiculous. Walls Lincoln Mercury in Methuen is closed they moved up to the salisbury site. I used to go in there 3-4 times a week to get parts.They are great guys.

Northampton Ford is apparently gone...employees were asked to stay on while he fought Ford in court...but...they couldn't be paid. We've already hired a service advisor...a parts wholesale guy...and...a tech from there.

Unfortunately...the business has been losing money for so long that the owner has bled himself dry. There just isn't any money left.
