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.
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.
