Petries garage
« on: June 19, 2018, 22:28:16 PM »
 I hear that petries garage has ceased  trading as from yesterday.   Another good business lost in the town
 Ive used alan petries garage right from the time i left my husband in 2004. He has kept my car on the road every year since then. Also when it got smashed up when a friend reversed into it  when it was stationary on my drive and caused a lot of damage to it.
Since ive been walking with a stick and unable to walk far or long distances they have always picked me up and driven me home again as required which was nice of them. I for one will be sorry they have gone . Alan is a nice chap. I was at school with him .  I knew i could trust him with my car and i wouldnt be ripped off as a lone woman like a lot of garages have done to me in the past.  Alan, if you or nessa can see this , im sorry youve had to close down for whatever reasons.  Regards deb x
A letter has been put up in the door and posted on spotted westbury on fb. I will get it and add it in a moment

Well, businesses cease trading for all sorts of reasons and not always because the owner is retiring or made no profit.

I don't know what is happening, but I imagine it is perfectly possible that any of the following might apply:

* Mr Petrie might want to get out of a long term contract such as a lease and the only way to ensure this is achieved instantly is if the contractor / tenant is his limited company and he is a not a personal guarantor. He could just liquidate the company and this would result in the contract/ deed being cancelled.

* Mr Petrie might be setting up a new business with a new company in new premises.

* Mr Petrie might be emigrating or doing something else radical to start a new life or career ....

Who knows?

Quantum’s, who are the contact according to that notice, are basically business recovery. You bring them in when you areknackered, either to sell off or to fold. Sad for all involved really.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.
