Bill Heard Chevrolet files Chapter 11, owes $229 million
Bill Heard Chevrolet was the self-proclaimed "Mr. Big Volume" car shopping superstore that pushed Motown metal out its showroom doors even for customers with bad credit. The Georgia-based dealer seems to have had as many enemies as it had vehicle sales, and the state of Georgia just last month accused it of misleading business practices and forging signatures. The over 2,000 employees at the 14 dealerships are also considering a class action wrongful termination lawsuit that stems from the abrupt conclusion of their employment. Bill Heard Chevrolet was losing between $2 and $5 million dollars per month since mid-2007, and with woeful sales across the U.S., we're guessing it won't be the last dealership conglomerate to end abruptly. Thanks for the tip, Rahim!
