He said: “The dealership will close at the end of the month.

“It is making a loss and has for a long time.

“The car industry at the moment isn’t great and business wise the location is not good.

“You have to battle through to get to that area of Lincoln in the traffic, it’s difficult and it made footfall very low.

“The nail on the coffin has been the closure of Dixon Street for three months.

“It’s very sad and a shame to see the company close.”

An official closing date is yet to be confirmed and it is unknown if the site will be put up for sale at the time of writing.

Any warrantees or anything won’t be effected and customers can go through the Peugeot Customer Relations number on 0800 0422422.
