Car dealership suddenly closes

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - An Eastern Iowa car dealership suddenly closes its doors.

 Family Auto Center has locations in both Cedar Rapids and Toledo. Last year, Family Auto convinced General Motors not to cancel its franchise.

Last weekend, most of the vehicles were moved out of both locations.

According to the Tama-Toledo News, a spokesperson for Family Auto said Tuesday that the Toledo dealership is temporarily closed, and the ten people that worked there have been laid off.

We visited the Robins home of Family Auto Owner, Edward Polaco, on Thursday.

He said, "Family Auto is closed, that's our only comment," then shut the door.
