Three years after sale, Motorcycle Superstore will exit Oregon, cut 114 jobs

Jul 6, 2015

Comments An online motorcycle outfitter will exit Oregon after nearly two decades. MAG Retail Group will lay off 114 employees from its two hubs in Medford and consolidate operations to Dallas and Louisville, Kentucky, according to a mandatory notice sent to state officials by the company. The firm is behind several cycling brands, including Motorcycle Superstore. The online parts and gear seller started in Grants Pass in 1998 and later moved to Medford. The e-commerce retailer sold in 2012  to Motorcycle Aftermarket Group, an Irvine, California company. Under the new owners, Motorcycle Superstore's headquarters remained in the Rogue Valley for three years. But the shutdown will begin in September and be finalized by March. A MAG spokeswoman has not returned a message regarding the decision. The state filing, which arrived six months after the company hired a new CEO, cited "corporate restructuring. "  However, the firm's retail director told the (Medford) Mail Tribune in June the commerce site had trouble filling information technology, marketing and merchandising jobs there. The newspaper said the retailer may reopen a brick-and-mortar store in Medford at a different location. -- Molly Young
