    It would appear that Brownhills have closed Canterbury branch blaming the strong euro stopping people going to the Continent and pasing by the branch.

    Discover Leisure have closed Wrexham, Carlisle, Herne Bay, Portsmouth, Evesham and Orpington Branches.

    they claim its the down turn thats caused the closure. I couldnt see it tbh, i had 5 vans sold by the time they shut the doors this month, and i had a target of 9 for the month!!

    we were just slowly working our way out of the hole that was made by previous management too :(

    Much sympathy but I'm sure Peter will tell you just how much it costs to keep one of those branches open. It's not like potatoes, people will and do travel long distances to purchase a MH so I can imagine that sales will not suffer too much but overheads are dramatically cut and the rest survives. In this god forsaken country that's how it has to be.

    yes i think it is just the overheads thats killed it off. its a shame as i really think we were making headway against the expected "bad customer service" some people have found.
