Knowles
- 102 South Wilson Way - Harold "Ted" Knowles, along with his wife Dena built a tiny Wilson Way gasoline station into a prominent Stockton auto parts and sporting goods retail outlet that bore their name, died in a nearby Lodi hospital at the age of 90. Mr. Knowles along with his wife Dena started the gas station at Wilson & Market Street in 1944. Mr. Knowles soon made his name known for giving away free pumpkins, plastic hood ornaments along with free drinking glasses and windshield trinkets which attached using suction cups. Every now and then he held drawings to win free cars. "He was extremely talented in deciding upon items to promote the gas station," Carl Knowles, his son recalled. "And he liked working with the general public, to be on hand at the station, his specialty, and in later years inside the store. He loved talking with people."

The Knowles' quickly opened an auto-supply store next door to the gas station, piling auto parts in apple crates. Gradually they expanded their goods to include boating supplies, fishing gear, camping equipment and garden supplies . In 1961 the Knowles opened their second gas station, at the corner of Pacific Avenue & Hammer Lane, which also had a a small store. They built their current Knowles building at 1140 W. Hammer Lane in 1977.. It was also next door to the gas station, which has subsequently been closed and torn down. The cramped store on Wilson Way was closed when the Hammer Lane location was opened. Gradually Carl Knowles assumed the operation of the Knowles Store, although his parents would come by regularly to see how he and other members of the family in the business were doing. "Dad came by almost daily until he fell and broke his hip," Carl Knowles said. "Customers came in and constantly asked for him."

Plummer Automall - Buick, Cadillac, GMC, Pontiac - 1333 E Kettleman Ln closed it's doors on February 25, 2009, making it the second major auto dealer in Lodi to succumb to the souring economy and putting 59 people out of work.

The dealership's president, Dennis Plummer, said "it is with deep regret" that the business would close, "bringing to an end a proud legacy of serving the Lodi and Stockton communities for nearly 30 years." "This was not an easy decision for the management of our company and one that it went to great lengths to try and avoid," Plummer said. He added that management tried to re-negotiate its commitments with the General Motors Acceptance Corporation and Farmers and Merchants Bank but ultimately was unsuccessful. He noted that in 2008 the company generated $975,000 in sales tax revenue for the city of Lodi and San Joaquin County. "I want to take this very sad time to thank the Lodi community for your business and support for the last 28 years," Plummer said. "It was our honor to serve this fabulous community and the people within it."

Plummer's closure followed that of Geweke Chrysler Jeep Dodge, which ceased operations earlier this month. The auto industry has been one of the hardest hit sectors of the current economic downturn, and the industry's struggles can be seen as local dealerships close their doors.
