LOWVILLE, N.Y. (WWTI) – A longtime business staple in Lowville is closing its doors after 107 years in business.

In a letter posted on social media, Nortz and Virkler Ford in Lowville has announced it has closed as off Wednesday, November 1. The dealership said that it was the best available option for their family.
