Ed Schmidt to end Chevy sales in Maumee, dealer to stay open


Ed Schmidt Automotive Group will close its Chevrolet dealership in Maumee on Nov. 30, company officials said.

The dealership was cut by General Motors Co. as part of a plan to reduce its dealership network.

Ed Schmidt will continue to sell new and used vehicles from its Perrysburg location and will maintain limited operations in Maumee, including sale of Hummer vehicles, sale of used cars, and vehicle maintenance and repairs, officials said.

“The organization is also in serious discussions about other opportunities that we are not at liberty to discuss at this time,” the dealership said in a statement.

About 30 people will lose their jobs.
