Motorhome specialists on the move.
THE former Horse and Jockey pub and Wacky Warehouse site at Wythall has been purchased by a motorhome sales and repair company for PS850,000.
Redditch-based Motorhome Depot has acquired the site in order to expand its business and look nationwide for new markets.
The family-run business is preparing to move from rented premises in the Worcestershire town to the new 1.6-acre site near the M42.
Formed as a motor repair business in 1995, the company expanded into motorhome repairs and servicing before moving to its current base in 2010. It employs 13 people but is planning to recruit further staff to run a new accessory store and coffee shop when the new site opens in May.
Managing director Paul Chance runs Motorhome Depot with his wife, Janine, and daughter, Bethan.
He said: "We have been looking to expand for some time now and didn't want to keep on renting.
"The site is perfect as it enables us not only to sell and rent motorhomes but also set up an accessory store and coffee shop."
They were advised by Worcestershire property agency John Truslove.
