Two south New Jersey H-D shops abruptly shuttered


Two south New Jersey Harley-Davidson dealerships abruptly shut down Saturday, with no notice to employees or customers.

Millville Harley-Davidson and Wildwood Harley-Davidson are closed for good, according to NBC40.

One man told stopping by today told the station, "The thing is, I talked to them Friday or Thursday and they never let anybody know anything."

The web site for Millville Harley-Davidson still has a flashy advertisement for a Cinco de Mayo event, including a bike night and demo day, May 3-7. The site says the dealership opened in 1975 and was in the hands of the second and third generation of the family, Sam Macrine Sr. and Jr. Sam Macrine is also listed as owner of Wildwood Harley-Davidson.

One man arrived with $125 in gift cards to spend, and found the store closed. Another man left his bike for repairs and doesn’t know when he’ll get it back.

"It sucks man, like a swift kick in the you-know-what," Kenny Colon told the station. "I'm not playing no games, I just want my bike. I don't want none of their business."

The station’s calls to the owners were not returned and people inside the Millville store wouldn’t open the door or comment.

The mayor of Wildwood says he's been told the company is going through reorganization. H-D says warranties on bikes purchased at either shop will be honored.
