Asbury Automotive Group will be closing the Q auto store in Jacksonville, Fla., at the end of February, a company spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday to Auto Remarketing. The shutdown is due to the store's performance not being as strong as projected.
Employees of the store, who will be interviewed for jobs at other Asbury dealerships, were told Feb. 9, the spokesperson said.
Asbury decided to shut down the Jacksonville location following a review of recent numbers.
The store is one of three Q auto locations. It is the larger format of the three. Asbury has a medium-format Q auto store in Brandon, Fla., and a small-format store in Fort Myers, Fla.
