Another Cazoo site is being sold as part of the digital auto retailer’s strategy to reduce costs by shrinking the size of its business.

Car dealer group Bristol Street Motors will take over the Cazoo customer center in Tamworth, Staffordshire. It is scheduled to reopen in July. The premises cost Cazoo £1.0 million ($1.2 million U.S.) in November 2020 as part of its acquisition of Imperial Car Supermarkets.

Robert Forrester, CEO of Bristol Street Motors’ parent company Vertu, announced the deal on Twitter and LinkedIn after completing the lease assignment contract. The site is one of 15 out of 22 that Cazoo has decided to dispose off as part of its restructuring plan.

New and used car dealer group Peter Vardy purchased a Cazoo site in Glasgow earlier this month, while dealer group Arnold Clark acquired sites in Chertsey and Northampton in February. Dealer group Snows is set to acquire Cazoo’s flagship site in Southampton.

U.K.-based Cazoo made a loss of £704 million in 2022 and initiated a realignment plan in June 2022 that has seen it withdraw from mainland European markets.
