From Seaford to Salisbury: Rommel's Harley Davidson Dealership Moving Soon

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Rommel Harley Davidson will be closing up shop in Seaford, Delaware and moving to the former Gander Mountain box store in Salisbury, Maryland.

On Thursday, Rommel went before the Salisbury-Wicomico County Planning and Zoning Commission.  The commission approved the site plans for the dealership to take up one-third of the Gander Mountain box store. 

Commission Member Marc Kilmer says Rommel may have looked elsewhere if not for Maryland legislation passed last year.  A bill was passed to allow the sale of motorcycles on Sundays in Wicomico County. It is something Worcester County and Delaware had previously approved. 

"The passage of that is really what's allowed us to come to today where we're doing some final approval for Harley Davidson to locate here," Kilmer said. 

Salisbury City Mayor Jake Day says this will not only fill a vacancy for the visible storefront, but it will attract new customers into the city. 

"They're folks that have done well in life generally speaking and have the ability to own a luxury motorcycle. So disposable income means the ability to spend in restaurants or other stores in our area," Day said. 

Day says it's a shame that major stores like KMart, Sears, Toys R Us and Gander Mountain have left Salisbury, but this is a big step in the right direction. 

Day added that the next step for Rommel is to get building permits completed and that process typically takes about a week. He said that ideally, construction could start in Salisbury within the next couple of weeks.
