ARLINGTON — The national auto industry crunch has reached Arlington.

Dwayne Lane's Family of Auto Dealership announced Aug. 20 that it will be closing Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet as of Aug. 31

The family-owned dealership will be moving its remaining inventory to 7800 Evergreen Way in Everett — the former site of Dwayne Lane Dodge — along with about 10 of the Arlington dealership's 15 employees, said Tom Lane, president of the Northwest auto group.

The new dealership will be renamed Dwayne Lane's Quality Used Cars when it officially opens its doors Sept. 1.

Dwayne Lane will also be losing franchise rights to sell Chevrolet, meaning it can no longer sell and purchase any new Chevrolet makes and models.

The dealership has been located in Arlington for the past 12 years, Lane said.

"We are excited to be able to expand our offerings of pre-owned vehicles to our very supportive customer base," Lane said. "We are not going away for good, we are just moving our inventory and team to a larger location."
