    Another dealer gone?

    How long have I been out of the loop? See that BMW dealership in Countryside, Illinois is closed....when and why? Thought this odd as didn't they just change the name not long ago? So just Barrington holding on in Chicago area? Seems anymore the shelf life for 80% of BMW dealerships is less than 8 years. Lew Fox, South Chicago, Laurel, Rockford, Springfield, Peoria, Rock Island, Savoy and more have come and gone. So only two dealership in all of Illinois (Barrington and Sportland in Urbana)? We have just one in all of Indiana.

    Closed last Friday at 5pm. Word was out maybe a month in advance, had sale on a number of items. The pro ball player who owned it and a Mazda dealership was getting out of the Chicago area as I understood it.

    Windy City Triumph in St. Charles appears to be opening at BMW Motorrad dealer and Facebook page indicates possible opening within a month.

    At the moment Cyclewerks in Barrington only one in Chicago area. Never a bad experience there. Hadnít been there since remodel but more space than I remember last time.

    Sad to see all this, as my local dealer in Ft Lauderdale will be celebrating 60 years as a BMW dealer. Iím sure that my family and I contributed some to their bottom line....
