3 of biggest South Plains dealerships say they're not affected by GM closings

By Brittany Pieper  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Three of the area's largest Chevy dealerships survived the first round of GM cuts. All American Chevrolet in Slaton, Gene Messer and Scoggin Dickey all said their doors will stay open.

Friday, General Motors announced the company will put more than 1,000 Chevy, Buick, and GMC dealerships out of business. That's 40% of GM stores, but those dealerships sell just 7% of all GM vehicles.

GM will wind down the 1,100 stores through next year, buying back unsold cars. President Obama's spokesman said without this week's cuts, every GM and Chrysler dealership might have been forced to close.

NewsChannel 11 called several other South Plains dealerships to see if they're on the list of stores closing, but they either did not answer or have not returned our calls.
