Showroom for sale after Marshall closes Leicester Vauxhall dealership

Marshall Motor Group's Leicester Vauxhall dealership

A former Vauxhall dealership in Leicester is on the market following its closure by Marshall Motor Holdings.

It ceased operations on October 29, two weeks after Marshall’s Vauxhall franchise director Nick Hunton informed customers.

Vauxhall is still represented in Leicester by Drive Motor Retailing.

Marshall now represents Vauxhall at Ipswich, Knebworth and Peterborough.

“The decision to close our Leicester site was made with the full support and approval of Vauxhall Motors,” Hunton said on its website.

Property consultancy Rapleys has begun marketing the two-acre freehold site, which sits opposite Porsche Centre Leicester on the A563 Thurmaston Lane, which forms part of the Leicester outer ring road.

It has a 10 car showroom and 15-bay workshop, and a freestanding double bay valeting facility.

It comes almost a year after the AM100 dealer group announced the closure of Marshall Vauxhall Welwyn Garden City.
