East Anglian Mini Centre, in Ipswich, has gone into liquidation after it stopped trading last month after nearly 30 years of business.
The garage, which opened in 1989, was just a few months shy of celebrating its 30th anniversary when it was forced to shut because of “increasing costs and mounting debt”.
It specialised in both classic and BMW Minis and had been the subject of a BBC documentary in 2013.
Managing director, Ted Sparrow said: “It is with much sadness that I have to announce the immediate closure of The East Anglian Mini Centre Ltd, increasing costs and mounting debts have forced the issue.
“We nearly made it to 30 years of trading and in this time we have made many friends and would like to thank everyone for their support and custom.”
