MINI of Princeton closing

I just received a letter yesterday stating that as of October 1st MINI of Princeton New Jersey will be closing. They say due to recent changes in the local market.

Hope this is not a trend!

I'm pretty upset about it. They are only a five minute drive down the street. Now I will be driving about forty minutes to the closest dealer.

It's a shock to all of us here, too, sadly. This was announced to the staff on the last Tuesday of August.

Nothing like a nice 32 day notice before you lose your job.

Well at least they gave you a months notice. I had a job that after all the people left and locked up the owners came in and cleared the building out. The manager who opened the next morning called the cops cause he thought the place had been robbed. It wasn't till the cops called the owners that anyone knew they had done it themselves.

P.S. It does suck losing a job like that though. At least they found you a place at the BMW dealer.

I am brand new to the Mini world and love my new Mini Countryman ALL4 S...

From what I have been hearing lately sales of Mini's have been off by just over 10% this year which doesn't bode well and may be a sign that there will be some additional closures / consolidation of dealers...

Mini of Mt Laurel is a pretty high volume dealer it seems and in the year I have been looking at MINIs, Princeton cars were always higher priced. A shame indeed!
