Riverside Motors In Scarborough Closes Down

Published by Karen Liu at 6:01am 29th February 2020.

Scarborough is losing its Riverside Motors branch today.

The site on Main Street in Seamer, which has franchises for Seat and Mitsubishi, is closing.

It has 19 staff, some of whom were part-time.

Mark Denton, Managing Director of Riverside Motors Group, said:

"Fortunately quite a few members of staff have managed to find alternative employment, some part time staff are possibly retiring and four members of staff are going to be working with us either on site or at one of our other locations for a while."

Last month when it was announced, Mr. Denton said:

"It is with regret that after 30 years of business in Scarborough Riverside Eastern Ltd have taken the decision to cease trading at the end of February 2020.

Unfortunately, due to the 2019 financial performance of the site together with the current trading conditions and manufacturer future franchise requirements, these factors have meant closure was the only option available to us. At this moment in time we are in the process of looking at any redundancies that can be avoided.

We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to our valued staff and customers for their support over previous years.

We will be communicating directly with our customers to offer, where possible, alternative arrangements for any Mitsubishi or SEAT servicing/sales requirements that we may be able to facilitate at our Hull or Doncaster locations."
