J T Hughes is preparing to close one of its four branches in Shropshire as the dealership makes way for a Lidl supermarket.
The J T Hughes Honda and Nissan garage, in Victoria Road, Oswestry, will close on February 1 as the business prepares to focus on operations at its three other sites in Shrewsbury, Telford and Newtown, the Shropshire Star reported.
Discount supermarket operator Lidl was granted planning permission to develop the site in October.
In a letter to customers, J T Hughes managing director John Hughes said: “Following a review of the business, J T Hughes will be making a significant change to the way it provides sales and service care for our customers. From February 1 the J T Hughes dealership at Oswestry will close.
“We realise this will affect people like you, who use Oswestry for new and used car sales and servicing. However, the business continues to grow at our other dealerships – all of which are gearing up to service our Oswestry customers’ needs.”
