La Mesa RV is temporarily closing its location in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as immediate precaution related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our main goal,” La Mesa RV CEO Bob Upton said, “is to provide a safe environment for all of our family members whether it be our customers or our employees. COVID-19 has changed the lives for millions across the world. We’re taking the unprecedented step of temporarily closing our Albuquerque store out of an abundance of caution to further protect the health of our employees and customers.”
La Mesa RV has instituted company-wide policy of sanitizing and enhanced cleaning at its 12 facilities in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Florida. Employees and consumers coming into stores have been asked to keep an appropriate social distance. Citing privacy issues, a company spokesperson declined comment on why the Albuquerque store is the only La Mesa RV location that is temporarily closing.
Customers calling the store in Albuquerque will have calls routed to the La Mesa RV location in Tucson, Arizona. RVs that were in for service in Albuquerque prior to the closure will need to remain at the facility until a planned reopening on Monday, April 13. Customers with RVs in for service are being contacted by La Mesa RV alerting them to the closure. Information concerning new and used RVs for sale can still be obtained through the dealership’s website or by calling 800-496-8778. Additional information as it becomes available will be posted on La Mesa RV’s website and social media channels.
La Mesa RV was founded in 1972 in a suburb of San Diego. The company carries towables and a large inventory of motorhomes, with brands including Tiffin, Winnebago and Fleetwood.
