At Drake Chevrolet Pontiac Chrysler Dodge ..., 1 June 2009 [cached]
At Drake Chevrolet Pontiac Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Monticello, vice president Perry Elam told the sales staff to stay upbeat and turn any negative comments to positives.
Plus, he said, it helps that "we've been so busy that we haven't had time to think about it."
The dealership was one of just a few in Kentucky that was hit doubly hard by the recent dealer cutbacks. Its staff learned last month that Chrysler, which is already under bankruptcy protection, would sever ties with it beginning June 9. A day later, it learned GM plans not to renew its franchise agreement when it expires in late 2010.
"It was like a bombshell for everybody," Elam said.
"Our numbers had been pretty good," he said. "We're just in a small town, and we've got competition all around us."
Elam said the company, which also sells used cars of all brands, hopes to improve its Chevrolet performance, and it is eligible, like other dealers, to appeal GM's decision.
So far, the employees have been concentrating on selling mainly Chryslers. The dealership had 30-plus Chryslers in stock when it was told the automaker would cut its franchise. It's down to 12, Elam said, having sent only four to remaining Chrysler dealers.
"We just discounted them and sold them right here," Elam said.
