Economy Fells Mass. Dealer


Popoli Powersports of Westfield, Mass., is another casualty of the bad economy.

The dealership, which focused on Japanese bikes, posted the following notice on its website:

“To our Loyal Customer and Friends,

Due to unfortunate economic conditions, it is with great sadness we announce that Popoli Powersports is closed.

We would like to thank you sincerely for all of your patronage and friendship throughout the years and hope that you may find a new dealership to support your riding needs.

In the coming days and weeks, we hope that economic conditions support the store's reopening.

For those that have bikes in our Service Department or on Consignment, we will be posting a "claim date" in the next day or so with instructions regarding your opportunity to come and pick up your machine.”

A sign on the front door of the dealership says they are closing due to "uncontrollable economic conditions." It also says they are finalizing arrangements with a potential buyer to take over operations, according to WWLP TV in Massachusetts.
