Santa Barbara Harley-Davidson to Close Sept. 30

Store will begin a going-out-of-business sale on Wednesday

Santa Barbara Harley-Davidson, 3501 Via Real in Carpinteria, announced Monday its plans to close Sept. 30.

“Over the past eight years, I have been blessed with your continued support as customers and friends, so many of you I will never forget the times we spent together and the fun we had at the dealership,” Jedediah Renshaw, owner of the South Coast motorcycle seller, said in an e-mail. “You have no idea how hard it is to write this letter as many of you know Harley is a way of life for me and my family, this dealership was our home.”

Renshaw said the company will have a going-out-of-business sale from Wednesday, Aug. 25 until its closing date.

“As valued friends and customers, I wanted you to hear the news from me and let you know I did everything possible to prevent this from happening, and I apologize for letting you all down,” Renshaw said. “For reasons beyond my control, Santa Barbara Harley-Davidson will retire its Bar Shield.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
