The Fred Caldwell Chevrolet location in Lake Wylie will be closed by the end of the month. Two employees at the location will be offered jobs at Caldwell's Clover dealership, which is adding 5,000 square feet to its service department. In total, Caldwell's dealerships in the greater Charlotte area employ 25 people.
"The Lake Wylie location was doing ok," Caldwell said on Friday, "but we feel like with the current conditions in the economy, and with the addition to our Clover dealership, that we'd be able to operate more efficiently out of one office."
Plans for the Lake Wylie lot, located at 4815 Charlotte Hwy., were not announced.
The dealership was named Business of the Year last week. See page 4A for more information.
