Chrysler dealer in Waverly to close

Published 10:58 pm Thursday, May 14, 2009

Waverly Motors is among nearly 800 Chrysler dealerships nationwide that will close as part of the struggling automaker’s plan to emerge from bankruptcy.

The Sussex County dealership was on the list of dealerships made public in a filing with the bankruptcy court Thursday.

Franklin’s Chrysler dealership closed two years ago. Western Tidewater’s only other Chrysler dealer – Starr Motors in Suffolk – was not on the closure list.
