Dan Perkins Chevrolet Closes

Evan Perkins said in a letter to customers that the family-owned Dan Perkins Chevrolet dealership on Bridgeport Avenue has closed, ending a 30-year relationship between the GM automakers with its mythic Camaro and Corvette nameplates and the local businessman known as “Dan Dan the Chevy Man.”

Evan Perkins said the family’s Subaru dealership will remain and can provide service for other makes and models. The company also plans to open a Pre-Owned Car Center soon with more than 500 vehicles. There will also be another Chevy dealer in Milford.

The Perkins Chevrolet dealership is slated to become a pharmacy, officials said.
