Local Chrysler Dealership Closing its doors
BY NCC NEWS REPORTER: Chloe Sommers
Syracuse, NY—After 50 years of service to the Syracuse Community the Lewis Goodman Dealership on the Westside of Syracuse is closing its doors. Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Chrysler Dealership that is set to close next Tuesday.
People have came into the dealership to say their goodbyes since they announced they were closing.
“I bought my vehicles here because of the great service and kind people,' said Lee and Sharon Issa.
"It is going to be a sad day when they close their doors.”
The anniversary comes on the same day that a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of substantially all of U.S. automaker Chrysler's assets to a group led by Italy's Fiat SpA.
The Lewis Goodman Dealership was run by Lewis Goodman until he died in 2007. Manger T.R. Sayles says the dealership has lots of character and tradition within the community.
“They chose to close this dealership because we are just a Chrysler Dealership and not Dodge and Jeep also," said Sayles.
"People came because Lewis Goodman set a good standard for service. That brought people back into the doors.”
The Lewis Goodman Dealership is located on West Genesee Street. The last day is scheduled for Tuesday June 9th 2009.
