Most dealers expected to pause for holidays

November 29, 2010
 

Most area dealers will observe the year-end holidays by closing for business, a recent CATA poll shows. Important, the 701 and 731 unions present in some dealerships no longer recognize New Year’s Eve as a holiday.

Sixty-two dealers responded to the survey of their operations in various departments. See results below.
