BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A woman who was planning to open up a new auto care business at the former dealership of suspended car dealer Glenn Geiser told NEWS CENTER she has changed her mind, due to some of the negative publicity surrounding the business venture.
Gwendolyn Reddy applied for a certificate of occupancy with the City of Bangor to operate an auto sales and service business at 170 Washington St. She said the business would have been an auto detailing business. An advertisement published in the Bangor Daily News also included "Service Towing and Rentals."
Reddy listed her home address as 40 Oak Grove Dr. in Brewer on her application -- and that is what drew some attention because that house is owned by Glenn Geiser.
In March, Geiser had his license to sell cars or rent cars in Maine suspended for 180 days, stemming from accusations he used fake inspection stickers.The Maine Attorney Generals Office is also suing him on allegations he targeted vulnerable people with poor credit and sold them cars that couldn't pass inspection.
Reddy declined to discuss her relationship with Geiser saying that she is a private person and that she shouldn't have to discuss her personal life when talking about her business ventures.
She said she would withdraw her application for this business to protect her privacy and that of her children.
