Thompson First

Thompson First

"Welcome to Thompson First the family run car dealership established in 1972. Started By Dick Thompson and Paul Lacey as Lacey and Thompson. We have had franchises from TVR and Saab in the early days to then switching to Citroen for the last 40 years. In 2000 Lacey and Thompson became Thompson First, while at this point was ran by Dick’s son Cameron. Thompson First is now in its 3rd Generation with the dealership now being ran by Cameron’s son Scott who came into the business in 2012. In 2019 we are going to make our next big change bringing back the MG franchise back to Stroud. We are excited for this change and look forward to running this alongside our Citroen stock, Used Cars, MOT station and authorised repairer workshop."

  • First class experience - could not have been bette

    By GEORGE M 6 Days ago

    I have just purchased a lovely MG ZS from this company and was delighted with how courteous and professional everyone was. I test drove the car on Saturday (6th July) and picked it up on Tuesday (9th). Ellie (sales executive) was very efficient and even arranged for me to be picked up at Stroud railway Station. My thanks to all at Thompson - I could not be more pleased with my experience . I wish you all every success in the future.

  • Probably the best car buying experience I have had

    Had a fantastic experience with Thompson First - Darren was wonderful to deal with, very attentive and genuine. No pushy sales talk, just genuinely seemed to want to do the best for the customer. How car sales should be. I was so impressed with the service and the car, that I drove 150 miles to collect it. Super happy with the car too. Overall would recommend these guys - don't buy from your "street dealer" go to a proper dealership for your used car - you won't be disappointed :)
