Great plan, Chrysler. This way, we can all look forward to the former sites of Taj Mahal CJD stores that will exist as vacant husks of former businesses. Much like the sites of original Walmart stores that were vacated in so many locations, even if only so that the company could build all new, larger, Super Walmart stores.

Different types of poor corporate judgement, but with the same end result:
urban and suburban blight.

It's interesting you use the Walmart example - I was just in Lake Havasu, AZ last week and that's the exact scenario that's happened there. Walmart moved from a mall that was near the center of town and built a Super Center on the edge of town. That was two years ago and their old building still sits vacant as the remaining stores in the old mall wither and die.

Concerning Chrysler's desire for expensive facilities, they're not alone. It seems like most of the OEMs want their dealers to build showcase facilities.
