A PERFECT TEN FOR MG RETAIL NETWORK IN 2014

The expansion of the MG retail network continues as Leicester, the tenth largest city in the country, becomes home to the tenthMG dealer to be appointed in 2014.

Bishop & Bishop opened in 1947 and has been a family-run business ever since. The three-quarter acre site on Leicester Road is in the centre of Wigston, just four miles from Leicester city centre. It has a staff of 20 and a seven bay workshop. MG6 and MG3 models will be displayed in the four-car showroom.

The dealership, in Wigston, just outside Leicester, is run by Managing Director John Williams who started in the automotive business as an apprentice technician, a keen MG enthusiast, who, in his youth renovated an MG Midget.

John said: “We sold MGs up until 2003 and it’s really good to be back with such a fantastic brand that has such a huge, loyal following. I’ve driven most of the old MGs and I think the MG6 and MG3 models are the best yet.”

The new dealership plans to officially open for business during March and plans are already underway for an opening celebration event.

Since January new MG dealers have been appointed in Spalding, Dudley, Newcastle-on-Tyne, Doncaster, Northampton, Norwich, Swindon, Harrogate and Barnes in London.
