KWIK Fit has confirmed it has acquired the building next door to its premises in Guild Street, Stratford, as part of an expansion.
It will expand into the site of the former toy shop, Much Ado About Toys.
The previous Kwik Fit manager, Craig Cooper, is returning from a stint in Halesowen to manage the development and subsequent operation of the workshop.
He said: “I am very proud and excited to be chosen as the manager of this flagship operation.
“As well as the services offered currently, we shall be broadening our scope.”
