    They must have pots of money to pay the lease on a building they've done the square root of bugger all in for months.

    Yet another no business plan, no idea, no hope merchant in the catering trade. Though I do hope I'm wrong.

    The landlord wanted the island sales area back so Dibba has moved all his cars to his other sales site.

    Yes, they open in May. I think it will be located next to JD sports in the new Riverside development.

    They are a very progressive hair group and have their own academy in Wolverhampton

    So it's a business lost to the town then.

    But it is one car dealer replaced with another so essentially there is no change.

    If Eco Motors had moved to another place in town - the old Nissan dealership for example - then it would have been a benefit to the town.

    Not sure of your point. You seemed to be concerned with the loss of eco motors claiming a loss to the town.

    But it is being replaced for a like for like and probably better. So there is certainly no loss in the grand scheme of things. Not sure what the nissan site has to do with it ??
