Charles Hurst Group, Northern Ireland’s biggest car retailer, has expanded its offering with a new 333 sq metre Vauxhall showroom at its site in Mallusk, taking its number of Vauxhall retail units to four.
The new showroom represents an investment of £250,000 and has created twenty jobs at the prominent, Newtownabbey-based site, providing a full suite of new and used cars, fleet services, motability and aftersales.
Colin McNab, Operations Director, Charles Hurst, said the investment represents an important development for the business:
“Charles Hurst remains committed to investing in the business in order to continue delivering the best products and services to our customers. Our Newtownabbey site encompasses a wide range of our leading brands including Toyota, Nissan, Renault together with a Usedirect retail unit; the addition of a modern Vauxhall showroom will further strengthen our service provision in the area.
“By offering customers a wide choice of vehicles and the most competitive offers, across both new and used ranges, together with providing an exceptional level of service, Charles Hurst Vauxhall has gone from strength-to-strength in recent years and this new showroom will underpin our continued success for many more to come.”
Keith Hyde, Franchise Manager for Charles Hurst Vauxhall, added:
“The new retail unit’s opening represents another expansion of our significant Vauxhall footprint, a brand we are very proud to represent, and strengthens our position as Northern Ireland’s leading Vauxhall retailer.
“With a number of new models recently added to the Vauxhall line-up and a strong used car offering, we are confident that the new retail unit will deliver a strong trading future for the business and provide a great service for our customers.”
This is the second major investment Charles Hurst Vauxhall has made in recent months following the opening of its refurbished Vauxhall showroom in Portadown as part of a £100,000 investment in the area.
