The Bountiful-based Doug Smith Chrysler Plymouth Yugo dealership has recently taken over operation of the former Canyon Chrysler dealership in Orem.

The dealership, closed since September, resumed operation in mid-February under Brad Smith. A staff of 13 will operate the dealership, which expects to sell between 1,000 and 1,200 cars a year, said spokeswoman Michele Pasker.The move will give the dealership greater buying power. The Orem dealership will continue to sell Chrysler-Plymouth products.
