Auto retailer Glyn Hopkin has completed the development of a new Renault and Dacia showroom site in Colchester and, as part of its increasing commitment to the French OEM, has also opened a new facility in St Albans. This comes just months after the opening of its inaugural Renault and Dacia retailer in Chelmsford.

The south east-based retailer has invested £1.2 million in its new Colchester operation. The work has has resulted in a 12-car showroom featuring the latest Renault CI, a standalone seven-bay workshop with a dedicated MOT test lane and enough room to display fifty used vehicles.

Prior to its opening, Glyn Hopkin represented Renault and Dacia in Colchester from a temporary facility and the group’s third retailer in St Albans is currently operating from an interim showroom. The company is considering its options onsite and on other suitable locations in the region for another all-new showroom complex in due course.
