25 Northwest Chrysler dealerships on closure list

SPOKANE, Wash. - Chrysler LLC has told a bankruptcy court it plans to eliminate 789 of its dealers including 25 dealerships in the Pacific Northwest. The automaker has about 3,200 dealers but says that's too many for it support if it hopes to return to profitability.

The dealers affected by the plan began receiving notification letters Thursday. A copy of one such letter obtained by CNN Money said, "With regret, this letter is to inform you that on May 14th, 2009, we are filing a motion in bankruptcy court rejecting the Sales and Service Agreement(s) between Chrysler Motors LLC and the dealership listed above. Upon approval from the court, your agreement will be rejected on or about June 9, 2009."

The dealers likely will have a right to appeal to get off the list. Still, some analysts predict that the move could have a devastating impact on cities across the U.S., costing jobs and tax revenue. NBC News estimates these closures will lead to nearly 38,000 unemployed workers nationwide.

According to a master list of the dealerships set for closure no Spokane businesses would be affected however 25 dealerships in Washington, Idaho & Oregon were on the list. In Eastern Washington & North Idaho there were four closures with two other closures in Yakima and Tri Cities respectively. Speaking with our affiliate station KNDO the two Yakima dealerships say that they won't be forced to close because they also sell other brands of automobiles. That might not be the case for Tri Cities Motor Sales in Pasco and Leskovar Lincoln Mercury in Kennewick according to reporting from our Tri Cities affiliate KNDU.

KLEW-TV in Lewiston reports that Ambassador Auto Service in Moscow is primarily a Subaru dealership. Sales manager and part-owner Jeff Mack told KLEW that its to early to see how the news will affect the business. As of Friday morning it was unclear whether the other Idaho dealerships would be able to survive by selling other brands.

All of the dealers likely will have a right to appeal to get off the list.
