First, it was Chrysler's Kenosha engine plant.
Now it's 789 Chrysler dealers across the country who are getting the axe.
The troubled automaker announced Thursday that it wil shut 789 Chrysler dealerships, revoking the franchise of one-quarter of the 3,200 "stores" that sell its cars.
Half of them, according to the company's filing in Bankruptcy Court, sell fewer than 100 cars a year.
None of the rejected dealerships is in Racine; the closest on the closure list are Boucher Imports in Greenfield, and Dodge City of Milwaukee. A searchable list of all the dealers Chrysler wants to close is here.
More bad news is coming Friday, when 1,200 General Motors dealerships are expected to receive similar notices that their franchises are being cut.
