Wyatt Chevrolet shutting down May 1
SoVaNow.com / April 15, 2013Wyatt Chevrolet will be closing its business on May 1, owner Jack Caldwell said Monday.
"Forty years has been enough." Caldwell said
"I've been here everyday of my adult life and I'm looking forward to having a little time to do some other things."
Caldwell is a third generation family member to run the business, which opened in South Boston in 1939.
"This is a young person's business," he said. 1817
CommentsI hate to hear this because another locally owned business is closing and it leaves South Boston/ HC with only one franchised new car dealer. Meaning- if you want a GM vehicle, you will now have to drive 30+ miles for sales and service, and if Woodall is the only option I have for a GM vehicle, I just won't own another GM vehicle.
Not surprising though- amazed me Wyatt kept their franchise long as they have the way GM was "restructuring" a few years back. GM doesn't want small locally owned dealers anymore. You know, the kind of dealer who is an integral part of their community, supporting civic projects, Little League teams, local newspapers and radio stations...
I sure did love going in there with my dad and checking out new cars in the showroom. Still remember that delicious new car smell in there.
