  • Carite Cuts Ties with Store

    Buy-here, pay-here chain Carite announced its decision to sever its contractual relationship with the former business owners of Carite of Kalamazoo, Mich.  
    This dealership was independently owned and operated under a license granted by Carite to operate under its brand.  The decision to terminate the relationship was made earlier in April following several defaults and delinquencies by these business owners. 
    The store is currently closed and there is a pending lawsuit brought by Carite against the former owners.
    Carite is aware that there are Carite of Kalamazoo customers who have been impacted by the former business partners’ actions, mostly related to their failure to properly process title and registration paperwork.  While Carite pursues all available legal remedies against these former business owners, Carite will work with any customers who are experiencing difficulties in obtaining their registration and/or plates under the previous ownership.
    Carite plans to re-open the Kalamazoo location as a corporate-owned dealership in the future.
