Riverside Eastern in Seamer is to close.

The car dealership on Main Street sells Volvo, SEAT, and Mitsubishi vehicles.

It employs 19 members of staff, some of whom on part-time contracts.

Mark Denton, Managing Director, said: "It is with regret that after 30 years of business in Scarborough Riverside Eastern Ltd have taken the decision to cease trading at the end of February 2020.

"Unfortunately, due to the 2019 financial performance of the site together with the current trading conditions and manufacturer future franchise requirements, these factors have meant closure was the only option available to us. At this moment in time we are in the process of looking at any redundancies that can be avoided.

"We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to our valued staff and customers for their support over previous years.

"We will be communicating directly with our customers to offer, where possible, alternative arrangements for any Mitsubishi or SEAT servicing/sales requirements that we may be able to facilitate at our Hull or Doncaster locations."
