Greens of Rainham/Medway Mercedes

Greens of Rainham was one of the main car dealers in Rainham located on the A2 at Moor Street on the same site as Medway Mercedes and Texaco garage. It closed in December 2008 and the site has been empty since then.

It has been announced that Greens of Rainham, the Vauxhall car dealer has been placed in administration. The Greens Vauxhall showrooms in Rainham and Snodland have been empty for several months so the confirmation was no great surprise locally. Sadly some 70 Greens of Rainham employees lost their jobs having been left in limbo since December when they were last paid but without being given any information until now about the fate of the company.


As of 2021 the showroom side of the site has been taken over by Medway Hyundai car dealers, the petrol station is still closed but now selling second hand cars and the former Medway Mercedes building is showing signs that it will become a wedding venue.

This news would appear to confirm the depth and severity of the current recession by claiming a dealership that has successfully survived many previous recessions and downturns.
