National motor retailer Lookers has built upon its close relationship with popular brand Skoda with the grand opening of its newest luxury retail site in Stockport.
The launch of the brand new Lookers Skoda Stockport site on St. Mary’s Way represents an investment of over £1m and features a new car showroom. With space for 8 new car models, a 120 used car display, as well as 8 repair and maintenance bays.
The retail site includes TV lounge, kids play area and a cutting edge car configurator. This allows customers to create their own bespoke dream car in the showroom.
The grand opening saw executives from both Skoda and Lookers mingle with some of the brand’s loyal customers in the North West.
Guests were also able to take a look around some of the brand’s latest models, including the new Skoda Octavia, which recently received a five star review in What Car? magazine. As well as find out more about upcoming launches such as Skoda’s brand new SUV, the Karoq and the latest version of the Fabia.
The audience were also treated to the grand unveiling of the brand new Skoda Kodiaq, the brand’s largest SUV.
The new retail site forms part of Lookers’ wider capital investment programme. Which has seen major refurbishment work at Lookers SEAT Stockport, a brand that is also part of the Volkswagen group.
The retailer is also under way with work to create a £4m Volvo showroom in Stockport, which will also open on St. Mary’s Way. In addition to national sites such as a new £17m Audi dealership in Dublin and a new £10m Volkswagen dealership in Battersea, London.
The new Skoda dealership strengthens the brand’s position in the North West, with Lookers Skoda locations also based in Salford and Eccles.
While the increasing popularity of the Skoda brand has proven to be an obvious attraction for motorist in the North West, Scott Innes, General Manager at Lookers Skoda, believes it’s the people that count. He said: “Everyone had a great time at the launch event and now we can’t wait to push on and establish the new site in the North West and introduce more customers to our fantastic range of cars.
