In order to shrink its UK retail network, Pendragon is preparing to close several of its Evans Halshaw Vauxhall dealership locations.

Consultation is underway with staff at Evans Halshaw’s Vauxhall dealership in Peterlee.

The group will not comment on the location of individual site closures while consultation with staff was going on.

A statement issued by the group said: “Following proposals by Vauxhall to revise its future distribution strategy, Pendragon has agreed to the closure of a small number of Evans Halshaw Vauxhall sites, predominantly in satellite locations. “Pendragon has now entered a period of consultation with affected team members, and we will work with them to identify possible alternative roles across the Pendragon Group.”
