A NEW £10m Peugeot Citroen Retail Group flagship dealership has opened for business in East London.
The Robins & Day Peugeot and Citroen Retail Group operation will incorporate two eight-car showrooms, space for more than 65 used cars, and a state-of-the-art 13-bay workshop and MOT testing facility.
Three of the eight Citroen showroom spaces will feature DS brand vehicles in their own salon area.
The Walthamstow dealership is located on Chingford Road just off London’s North Circular road, opposite the old Walthamstow dog track. The opening has created 46 news jobs in the area.
It offers sales, service, mobility and fleet sales facilities, alongside an onsite bodyshop. A selection of commercial vehicles is also available, as well as generous customer parking.
Dealer Principal Martyn Wood said: ‘It’s been a long time coming, all parties have been working hard to construct something we have been planning for years.
‘This is our first new-build, tri-brand site, and is a significant step in our company’s development. We look forward to building good relationships in the community, providing our customers with the best possible experience when visiting.’
The site was officially opened by David Peel, chief executive of Peugeot Citroën Retail Group UK, and Stéphane le Guével, director general of Peugeot Citroën Automobiles UK. They were joined for the evening by Waltham Forest Cabinet Member for Economic Growth & High Streets, Cllr Clare Coghill.
