Marshall closes car dealership

marshall vauxhallMarshall has closed its Vauxhall dealership in Ely.
After more than a decade in the city, the branch in St Mary’s Street closed on Friday.
Christopher Walkinshaw, the company’s communications director, said: “We are working with all 12 employees to find them alternative employment within the company.
“Vacancies are coming up at Marshall all the time so we are confident that we will be able to find the majority, if not all of them, alternative roles.”
He said the lease on the site was due to end in the next few weeks and Marshall decided to close rather then renew it. “We are now working with our customers to deal with their needs.”
The dealership has been in Ely since 2001.
The site’s owner, Ely businessman Mike Grey, said: “I do not know what the future holds for the site yet. I am now looking at all the possibilities, such as leasing it out to someone else or developing it.”
