Michael Scott, Franchise Director for Lookers Renault has said the £3m investment rebuilding the Stockport dealership is a positive sign. This is despite the current challenging economic landscape.

Scott praised the local team for its resilience during the rebuild effort. The Stockport franchise dealership reopened following a fire which devastated the site last September. During the rebuild, the New Car and Aftersales teams continued to support customer from nearby Wellington Road.

The new St. Mary’s site offers customers and staff a state-of-the-art sales and servicing area.

The site, now the flagship facility in Lookers Renault, boasts new meeting rooms, team break rooms and an indoor handover area for customers to collect their new car.  Furthermore, the workshop for servicing customers has expanded significantly, with ramp capacity increasing by 20% on site.

Michael Scott, Franchise Director for Lookers Renault said:

“This £3 million investment in our Stockport dealership is a welcome development and a positive sign for the future. It allow us to increase our servicing capacity and offer a modern, fresh and dynamic experience for customers and staff. Its also given us the opportunity to return even stronger and invest in our future success in Stockport. The team has shown incredible resilience and commitment to excellent customer service despite being faced with several challenges alongside the temporary relocation.”

David Sowerby who is appointed as Branch Manager for the site in November said:

“The fire and relocation have been a challenge for everyone concerned. I’d like to thank our customers and colleagues for their patience and understanding during this period. However, this difficult situation has given us the opportunity to come back even stronger with a market-leading state-of-the-art facility. We’re incredibly proud of the new dealership and I know the team are excited to welcome customers back through the doors.”
