Normandy Ford, a car dealership in Ellicott City, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, saying it owes more than $6 million to creditors.
In court papers filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, the dealership on Baltimore National Pike claims assets of $2.2 million and says it has unpaid debts from about 170 creditors.
The largest unsecured creditor in the filing is $20,684 owed to RMP National, a Philadelphia firm serving the auto industry.
Other large debts include $14,306 owed to B&L Sales, a Baltimore distributor of car polishes; $6,100 owed to Miller Brothers Chevrolet in Ellicott City; $5,950 owed to BJ's Wholesale Club; and $5,204 owed to Bell Atlantic.
Debts owed to area companies include $4,819 to Rental Uniform Service in Frederick, $4,000 to Waste Management Services; and $3,689 to Kimmel Tire of Baltimore.
James A. Vidmar Jr., a Silver Spring attorney representing Normandy Ford, was not available for comment yesterday.
Chapter 11 protection would allow the dealership to continue operating while structuring a debt payment schedule.
