Penske during the first week of May closed two of its small CarShop express centers in the UK, Penske spokesman Anthony Pordon said last week. Express places, which are included in the total number of shops, are outlets in the city center, where customers can order and receive vehicles.
Closed express sites increased costs and did not add additional CarShop sales in the UK, Pordon said.
Some construction sites could delay the opening. There are four in Pinsk Full-fledged CarShop stores with service departments and repair centers under construction in the United States and the United Kingdom
“We are going to monitor the market before we open them,” Penske said. “We will open at the right time.”
