Harley-Davidson dealership on the 101 in Calif. closes

A family-owned Harley-Davidson dealership has closed its doors after 35 years in the business, according to an article in The Tribune.

Kristy Bang-Popowich, manager of Gary Bang Harley-Davidson, said in an interview that the local market was simply not large enough to support the business. “It’s not a big enough area for our size and we really need to have that floor traffic,” she said.

In past years, the dealership has sold more than 120 motorcycles a year, but recently that number has dropped to approximately 50 bikes sold. The 27,000-suare-foot facility officially closed on Sunday Jan. 3.
