A Monmouth auto dealership has announced it is closing its Monmouth location, a move the company says will “bring efficiencies to the business.”

Kunes Auto & RV Group, a large, family-owned auto dealership, has announced Kunes Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM of Monmouth will consolidate with a neighboring Kunes store to bring efficiencies to the business.

A news release says customers from the Monmouth location will still have access to service and parts through any of Kunes’ other 40-plus locations. In addition, the store’s 16 employees will continue their roles at nearby Kunes Auto Group locations in Galesburg, Macomb, Sterling and the Quad Cities.

“It is important to us that our employees remain part of the Kunes family,” Kunes COO Scott Kunes said in the news release. “That. is possible thanks to Kunes’ large footprint in the area.”

It marks the first time in Kunes’ 28-year history that it has closed any of its stores. The auto group grew from 15 dealerships to more than 40 since 2019 and added around 1,000 employees. Kunes still operates 10 Chrysler stores across Wisconsin and Illinois. The closure will enable Kunes to further invest in new areas.

“In addition to caring for our employees, it is equally important to show our Monmouth customers that they – and their vehicles – are a priority to us,” Kunes continued. “A Kunes customer is a customer for life. We want them to know they are welcome at any of our locations whenever they need maintenance or have questions.”
