Didn't know where else to put this but I was in Western Edinburgh today when a large transporter pulled up outside and Tony said it's cars from Western AR Perth who closed down, almost out of the blue, yesterday! Apparently, since they lost Saab, and probably the 159/Brera/GT, they've been struggling and the decision was made yesterday. All the cars are going to Edinburgh but no news of a new dealer further north. That leaves Scotland with only two dealers now! I thought the worries were over! Not sure if giving a deposit over is a good idea or not now!
This official announcement was being carefully considered and written, probably during your visit to Edinburgh today. Sad News
Perth Dealership Closure
The Western Alfa Romeo dealership in Perth will close on 30th June 2014. Regrettably, it has not been possible to rebuild the business after the collapse of the sister franchise, Saab, in 2011. We have worked very hard to find a suitable alternative franchise to replace Saab in Perth with no success, and after almost 3 years of declining sales volumes the business is no longer a commercially viable operation as a stand alone Alfa Romeo dealership.
Eastern Western Motor Group would like to sincerely thank our Perth customers for all of their loyalty and support over the years. We will be delighted to continue to serve our Perth customers from our Edinburgh and Glasgow dealerships.
Similarly, we would like to thank the loyal team of staff in Perth for their contribution to our Group over the years. We are working with them during this difficult time to help find new careers within our Group or with other employers.
