...or at least that is what I have been told. I know our John Deere dealership is closing it's doors as of today. This will require me and a number of my fellow operators a lot of time hauling our equipment to the larger dealerships. The franchisee told me that he received a letter stating that they were pulling the franchise even though business had been good. He also told me that several other dealerships were closing. In order to maintain a dealership John Deere wanted the franchisee to own multiple locations. Single dealerships were apparently inefficient. Has anyone experienced this with their Deere dealership? Everyone here is pretty upset about it...as a farm community we really depended on this dealership for supplies, parts and service. If what the owner told me was true, then it was a heavy handed move by John Deere. I'm trying to stay cool about it until I can figure out what is really going on. If anyone has any info to share it would be appreciated.
