Brian W Boniface, Banora Point.
I received a letter from General Motors recently stating that Carsburg Holden have closed their franchise.
The real truth is that General Motors removed their franchise in spite of Carsburg’s many years of faithful service to General Motors, and have done so to many other country based dealers.
The most contemptible part of this letter from General Motors is that it appears to set out to direct Carsburg’s customer base to dealers outside of the Byron area whereas many people, including myself, from outside of the Byron Shire prefer to deal with Tony Carsburg because of his honest dealings and well-known community involvement.
Apparently many others in the Byron area have also received this misleading document, which quite clearly directs them to Tweed Heads for future Holden purchases and service.
I appeal to all of Carsburg’s past customers and potential future customers to continue to support this local business, which has for so many years provided employment for local people and also actively participated in community activity. I wish this business every success in the future in whatever form it may take.
