Lookers Volvo celebrates its first birthday in its new showroom

Lookers Volvo celebrates its first birthday in its new showroom

A Volvo retailer in Stockport is celebrating a 161 percent growth in new cars sales since opening its impressive new showroom one year ago.

Lookers Volvo’s £4 million showroom opened its doors in January 2018.

The retailer has seen new cars sales increase by 161 percent year on year, and used cars sales increase by 426 percent since the opening.

The showroom is complete with Scandinavian furniture, free Wi-Fi, Swedish cakes and coffee. Large exterior and interior glazing also allows customers to see all activity taking place in the new workshops, from, what feels like, the comfort of their living room.

Since the new showroom opened its doors last year, Lookers Volvo has created 11 new jobs, including an additional Apprentice Technician. The retailer has also added a business sales centre to support the local business community with fleet vehicles.  

Boyd Dennell, General Manager at Lookers Volvo, said: “We have achieved so much in a year, including our sales success, and it would not have been possible without the dedication of our team.

“Our showroom, which has eight award-winning Volvos on display and a six-bay workshop, has helped us greatly exceed our sales targets and has made our showroom much more inviting. We have also invested in team training to ensure that there is a high level of skill in the workshop.

“We are pleased that our hard work has paid off and we cannot wait to see what 2019 has instore for us!”
