ROCKFORD -- It has become official. Zimbrick of Rockford will be closing its doors tomorrow in its sales department and closing up its service department by close of business Saturday August 7th. All existing appointments will be honored. All assets will be liquidated by 08/31/2010.
With the loss of the Saturn franchise, and our inability to secure another one, it has become clear that we can not become a viable business any time in the near future. For this reason alone, we must close.
If you have a Saturn vehicle in warranty, you will be contacted as to which GM facility to take your vehicle to. Your extended warranties are also still in tact and backed by GM.
We are going to do our very best to help place the affected Zimbrick of Rockford employees locally with other facilities. If they come your way, grab them because they are good people who love servicing customers.
The 40 families who take pride in working at Zimbrick of Rockford thank you for making our journey so enjoyable. We did our best to run a business with integrity. We loved being part of the community. We loved the Saturn Dog Washes, road rallies, and other community events that we have done over the years. Most of all, we loved serving you.
So after nearly 18 years, that’s about it-at least for Saturn. It is a long good by. Hopefully, we’ll see you at another facility where we promise to continue that great customer experience you’ve enjoyed for so long. After all, it’s part of our DNA.
On behalf of the Zimbrick Family and everyone at Zimbrick of Rockford, thank you so much for an experience that has truly enriched our lives.
