COLUMBUS -- A Michigan automotive holding company is in contract to purchase Bobby Layman Chevrolet, according to documents sent to the state.

Feldman GM Holdings plans to purchase Bobby Layman Chevrolet sometime this spring, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act letter sent by representatives of Bobby Layman Chevrolet to the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services.

According to the letter: “There is no more specific date of the closure at this time. Because we are selling the assets of the Company. we will technically end the employment of everyone on our last day of running the business, and those who will be employed by the Buyer will begin their employment the next day.”

According to the filing, 103 employees were employed at Bobby Layman Chevrolet as of Feb. 28.

Jay Feldman said he is excited to work with the employees at Bobby Layman Chevrolet and has no plans to reduce staff at this time, saying it is very early in the process.

“There are a lot of talented people there, and we are looking forward to working with talented people,” Feldman said.

This will be the first dealership that Feldman owns in Ohio and said the purchase was an easy call.

“Columbus is a great town and there are great things going on there, it’s as simple as that,” Feldman said.

Calls to Bobby Layman Chevrolet were not returned.
