NC5 Investigates: Bill Heard Chevrolet

Bill Heard Shuts Down Remaining Dealerships

Posted:

What once claimed to be the World's Largest Chevy Dealer is out of business.

Bill Heard Chevrolet suddenly announced Wednesday morning that its 13 stores across the country were closing immediately.

Bill Heard had a large operation in Antioch until last year when it sold the dealership. That came after a NewsChannel5 investigation exposed questionable business practices there.

The closure of the remaining stores, including the dealership in Memphis, comes as Bill Heard is facing a lawsuit filed by the state of Georgia for deceiving and misleading customers.

Also, last month, GMAC cut Bill Heard's line of credit for new vehicles.

Employees today told NewsChannel5 they were told to turn in their company vehicles this morning and look for work elsewhere.

Bill Heard's corporate offices in Columbus, Georgia, had no comment.
