The Honda Parts online store, which was shut down on September 15, 2017 due to “industrial violence,” is closing its doors on September 31.
According to a statement from Honda, the store will remain closed for six weeks to allow “the manufacturer to address the current concerns about labor conditions and the availability of supplies.”
The statement continued: “Honda will continue to work with the local authorities in their investigation into the incident that led to this decision, as well as its partners in the United States, Japan and around the world to address any further safety concerns.
We are grateful to our customers and all those who have supported us over the years.”
Honda said it has received “several calls regarding the incidents and we are actively working with local authorities to address their concerns.”
In the statement, Honda said its team has “identified several factors that led us to this point,” but declined to comment further.
The shutdown of the Honda Parts store has also impacted other Honda Parts and accessories sites, which have also been shuttered in the past.
The Honda website also stopped accepting new orders on September 29, which is the day of the announcement.
“We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our customers,” the statement said.
“Hondas team has been actively working closely with local partners and regulators to address these concerns and will continue its investigation into this matter.”
