Closed on Sundays
I never realized this, but car dealerships are typically closed on Sundays. I think this is a really bad idea, when many automobile manufacturers are struggling to move their products. Sure, there are positive aspects for the employees of an establishment that closes one or two days a week -- but in any retail trade, isn't it like tying one hand behind your back in a fistfight? Can you imagine an amusement park that closed on Sundays?
I'd be interested to learn if most dealerships that keep closed on the Christian sabbath are doing so because of actual blue laws or because they're simply continuing a time-honored custom. Some market research might show whether dealerships that aren't legally bound to shut their doors might benefit from keeping them open.
What do you think?
