New MG dealer opens

Time 8:16 am, July 20, 2012

ONE of Britain’s leading classic car specialists has just become a fully-fledged MG dealer – and sold a new MG6 on its opening night.

Brown & Gammons in Baldock, Hertfordshire has specialised in MG cars for 35 years, but until now has never held an MG franchise. Now that’s changed and it has become Britain’s newest MG dealer to join the growing network.

July 18 saw almost 100 people attended the official opening and the keys of a new MG6 GT were handed over to a customer who had come in a few days earlier with the intention of buying parts for his classic car.

Chairman, Ron Gammons, said: ‘This is a dream come true for us. We were an authorised MG repairer years back and have worked on almost every MG model, but we never held the full MG sales franchise.

‘We’re so proud to be appointed and can’t wait to start selling the new MG6 models, which I rate as highly as any of the MG classics. We love the MG history but with cars like the MG6 the brand has a great future.’

The showrooms in Baldock are just 30 miles north of London and the firm is planning to invest around £60k on MOT testing facilities before the end of the year.

MG’s dealer network is expanding. Earlier this year new MG dealerships opened in Stoke-on-Trent, Brighton and Derby another is about to open in Lincoln.
