Quinn Motors losing Chrysler dealership

Quinn Motors of Ellsworth

The economic struggles nationally have made its way to Pierce County in another way.

Chrysler, LLC announced today in New York that they are closing 789 dealerships by June 9. Included on that list is Quinn Motors of Ellsworth.

"This is a sad time," said an emotional Meghan Quinn Kummer, owner of Quinn. She estimated Quinn have been selling Chryslers for over 80 years.

"Chrysler looked at a lot of different criteria that we didn't know about," she continued. "It's more complicated than what everyone knows.

"This goes beyond the car dealers. It goes to everything going on in our country today."

According to the Associated Press, Chrysler said in a bankruptcy court filing Thursday in New York that the network is antiquated and has too many stores competing with each other.
