Signs have gone up at Marshall Motor Group’s Volkswagen Grimsby signalling that this could be the end for the site. 

According to Business Live, a break notice was served on the lease for the 11,850 sq ft site in Grimsby and an agent has been appointed to market the dealership.

It adds that this will see a number of jobs lost as the Volkswagen sales and service business is expected to be consolidated into Scunthorpe, another of Marshall’s 19 VW brand sites.

A spokesperson for Marshall Motor Group: ‘We can confirm the closure of our Marshall Volkswagen Grimsby dealership.

‘All colleagues have been relocated to other areas of the business, where possible. We continue to represent leading brands in the Lincolnshire area.’

The dealership is located on the entrance to the town, on the A180, and Marshall also has Mini and BMW dealerships in the town.

The site was first opened in the early 1990s by Dixon Motors as part of an £8m development in the area.

It’s now advertised for £135,000 per annum to lease the property.

Marshall has been on an acquisition push in recent years, taking on Motorline Group in 2021 for £64.5m.

However, earlier this year it was bought by Constellation Automotive Group, also the owner of BCA.
