Pandemic Closes Down Tracks of Taunton

At a time when megadealerships are recording ever-spiralling profits, spare a thought for Tracks of Taunton, the Somerset Suzuki dealership which has had to close its doors permanently due to the pandemic and ‘changes in the industry’, according to Car Dealer mag.

A notice on the door says the dealership is permanently closed and MD Stephen Ody has written to customers, saying: ‘It is with great regret that due to changes in the motor industry and the impact of the pandemic…we have made the difficult decision to close Tracks of Taunton with immediate effect.

‘A multitude of factors including the limited supply of new vehicles and the investment required to improve the facility means it does not make economic sense to keep the dealership open.

‘We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your custom and we look forward to your continued support for Tracks in the future.’
