For awhile CW was franchising, or, alternatively, operating a CW store in conjunction with an independent sales & service dealer. Lazydays in Tampa was an example of the latter. That did not work all that well for either party, I guess, and when Marcus Lemonis took over as CEO of GS he merged the GS & CW operations and moved to buy out the franchisees so he could run store, sales & service under one umbrella. Franchises that wouldn't sell out did not have their contract renewed, so they go away one by one as they expire.
Were told it was a good thing we got in now as they would no longer be CW in a few weeks.
What's so lucky about that? Most people would say you are more lucky to avoid a CW than to depend on one. Are they saying they would not do the work after the name change? Only a few extended service plans require that a particular dealer chain be used. My condolences if you have one like that.!
