Still Game stars open new-look Motorpoint Glasgow showroom

Time 9:00 am, August 29, 2018

TWO stars from the BBC TV comedy Still Game have officially opened the new-look Motorpoint Glasgow showroom.

Mark Cox, who plays ‘Tam’ Mullen, and Jane McCarry, who portrays Isa Drennan, took time out from filming the ninth and final series of the Bafta-winning programme to help welcome customers to the new showroom in Hamilton Road, Mount Vernon, following a ‘substantial’ investment by the independent car retailer.

Motorpoint teamed up with Glasgow-based award-winning interior architects BSD Associates earlier this year to transform the showroom into a unique experiential space for car buyers.

The new-look showroom, which took more than two months to create, boasts a boutique-style Moto Café, a Kids’ Zone and an area dedicated to customers’ four-legged friends – as part of the branches’ continuing support for Dogs Trust.

Adam Gilmore, general manager of Motorpoint Glasgow, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to Tam and Isa for officially opening our fantastic new-look showroom. Staff, suppliers and customers alike were delighted to see them take time out to help celebrate our big day.’

Motorpoint established its Glasgow branch more than 15 years ago. Since then, it has sold a low-mileage nearly-new car to every postal code area in Scotland.
