Auction Direct USA, a used car dealership, is set to permanently close its Victor location on March 19, as per the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filed with the New York State Department of Labor.
The closure of the Victor facility will result in the layoff of 57 employees. The WARN notice, submitted on Thursday, indicates that the decision for the closure is based on economic reasons, although specific details regarding the economic factors leading to this closure were not disclosed.
The upcoming shutdown of the Victor location marks a significant reduction in Auction Direct USA’s operational footprint in the region. The company’s decision reflects broader economic challenges faced by businesses, particularly in the automotive industry. The layoff of 57 employees underscores the impact such closures have on the local workforce and community.
As the company prepares for this transition, the affected employees and the Victor community brace for the economic and social implications of the closure.
