Two California Harley-Davidson Stores Closing


A family that owns Harley-Davidson dealerships in Northern California is closing stores in Rocklin and Jackson and consolidating those operations into a store in Folsom.

The Guidera family has posted announcements on the websites of the two stores being closed, The Sacramento Bee reported today. The websites say the closings were tied to the bad economy.

According to the paper, the family opened its first Harley dealership in Citrus Heights in 1976. It moved into the Rocklin building in 1997, adding the Folsom store in 2003 and Harley-Davidson of Amador County in 2007.

The newspaper noted that something similar happened in August when Jay Westbrook closed his four-year-old Harley-Davidson of Elk Grove and shifted operations into his Sacramento dealership founded in 1919.

In May, the paper further noted, Auburn Harley-Davidson/Buell closed, citing economic troubles.
