A USED car dealer is set to close one of its branches.

In an email sent to customers, Bellinger revealed it will be closing its Didcot branch tomorrow.

The email read: “We are fully committed to continuing our service to you far into the future.

“To offer the very best service we can, we are working on the development of the business at our Grove branch, which includes updates to our workshop, sales and valeting departments.

“For us to facilitate this development, we have taken the decision to close our smaller branch at Didcot.

“This decision has not been taken lightly, it has taken many months of fact checking and making sure that any decision we make is in the best interest of our customers and our business.

“We understand that this may come as a shock to many of our customers but, rest assured, we are fully committed to the future and we are looking forward to offering you a bigger selection of vehicles and the same excellent aftersales service.”

All customers who use the Didcot branch will be transferred to the Grove one.

Family-owned Bellinger has run since 1932.
