Both Dawson Creek dealerships survive GMC cuts


Dawson Creek has survived the GMC chopping block.

Both Brown’s Chevrolet and Timberline Pontiac Buick GMC have confirmed that both dealerships will remain open. This comes after GMC announced it would cut 250 dealerships nation-wide; an initiative to cut costs.

GMC did not make the axed dealerships public, in an effort to be the first to tell each company individually.

Sales Manager for Timberline, Jerry Neufeld, says there was a lot of uncertainty while waiting for the letters to arrive.

Meanwhile, Browns Chevrolet’s Aaron Powell told the Edmonton Journal that "Everyone is a little bit worried and you never really know," but he adds “We’re happy, they let us know we’re in good standing."

Also, Fort St. John’s Murray GM can breathe a sigh of relief having received its letter from General Motors Corporation, stating the dealership will remain open.

Elsewhere, the Grande Prairie Herald-Tribune is reporting, that both GM dealerships in the city will remain open.
