EASTBOURNE’S Renault dealership has new owners.
Lifestyle Europe has purchased the retailer, adding to its 10-outlet, five-franchise dealership profile.
The multi-million pound deal includes the freehold premises – and, claims the group, will provide an additional £10 million to the company’s annual turnover.
But no wholesale changes are planned. For customers, it will be business as usual. Simply buoyed by some of the additional services Lifestyle can bring.
These, say the company, include an AA Warranty for used cars, 10 per cent off parts and a value service for £99. Competitive deals on new cars are promised, too – highlighted is a Clio Extreme 1.2 for £8695.
Lifestyle Europe, whose management team includes MD Peter Isted and chairman Marc Matthew, was named retail group of the year 2008.
