I was a (fairly) happy Millenium City Garages customer - once I knew to allow 40 mins + of "Nick" time with interactions I was happy - and just realised that they have closed when I went to book my MOT/yearly service. I'm sad to hear it and I hope John and the other mechanics are all ok.
So - are there any lovely local businesses that people recommend. My motor is a fairly reliable 13 year old sports car - it passes MOT usually with nothing more than a replaced light or some tweaks.
Well Nick was Marmite but I always got on with him well. I guess the HMRC went after him, could be Lloyds Bank, who have form in this. Worth noting he is a creditor for nearly £100,000. I think he needed a good accountant to keep an eye on all the invoices flying into various parts of his office.
Whatever my personal view on the business, it is always a very sad day when any local business goes under. It represents someone's hard work over many years and has consequences for employees, etc, as well as the other local businesses and other suppliers owed money which they are unlikely to get. Not making any judgment on it, Theedy, but directors are nearly always creditors of a struggling business.
