The site was bought by MPK Garages making it their second site secured through Christie & Co over the past year with the first being Walkers Garage in Carlton. MPK has several other deals in the pipeline with another site in the mature stages of transaction.

David Branch, Business Agent at Christie & Co who handled the sale comments, “We received several offers on the site from both independent and corporate operators and exceeded the seller’s expectations on sale price. This demonstrates the strength of the market for forecourts in the Midlands with existing companies looking to expand their operations and first-time purchasers looking to acquire their first business.
“This is the second site we have sold for the vendor – the first was back in 2013 where we were instructed by Co-op on an acquisition basis on a site in Wirksworth, Matlock. We wish both the vendor and purchaser the best of luck for their future plans.”
