We have received planning permission for a new showroom on Sticker Lane on the site of our current Vauxhall dealership in Bradford.
Work is due to start on site in April when the existing showroom built in 1987 will be demolished ready for the construction of a brand new building with 1,000sq m of floor space. The enlarged and enhanced showroom has been designed in conjunction with Vauxhall to provide upgraded facilities for customers as well as creating a more imposing building.
The Vauxhall Bradford dealership will continue to operate as usual from temporary accommodation, situated in the car park, during the redevelopment which is due for completion towards the end of the year.
The new showroom will incorporate Vauxhall’s latest interior design and customer comfort features including a new café bar, toilets with baby changing facilities and a dedicated customer vehicle handover buy as well as JCT600’s kids zone with iPad and gaming station and an energy-efficient LED lighting scheme. The improvements throughout the dealership will include upgrades to the workshop.
“Vauxhall is one of our longest standing franchises and, indeed, our Vauxhall site on Sticker Lane is almost 30 years old. We felt that rather than simply refurbishing the existing building, it was time for a total upgrade,” explains Mark Taylor, group property director. “In recent years, all of the leading motor retailers have focussed on designing their showrooms to make customer visits as enjoyable as possible. We are excited to be working with Vauxhall on this brand new building and look forward to sharing the improved facilities and stylish, comfortable surroundings with our customers.”
