ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – A dealership in Rochester, N.H., had sold off almost all of its Chrysler cars as the end of the business day approached.

Starting Wednesday, employees at what had been known as Rochester Toyota Dodge are answering the phone as just “Rochester Toyota.”

The dealership as well as others across the country rushed to liquidate their stock of Chrysler autos before the automaker was cutting business off with them Tuesday.

Lisa Casaccio, co-owner of the dealership, told Foster’s Daily Democrat she preferred selling the cars to her customers over redistributing them to non-terminated franchises even though doing so saved the dealership no money.

The dealership will continue to sell used autos as well as Toyotas.
