Lithia Ford Dealership in Richland Closing

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash-- The Lithia Ford Dealership in Richland is closing its doors this Sunday. Service Manager Don Stephens says they've been bought by McCurley Integrity Dealerships in Pasco.

Legacy Ford purchased their franchise meaning they will get all of their equipment that has the name ford on it.

According to Stephens all 30 employees are being let go. He says Lithia Corporation is consolidating many of its dealerships in the Northwest because of the slow economy.  A couple of the employees KNDU talked to say they have job interviews lined up already.
