Maddison said: “It was lovely to see Exeter’s community coming out to support the opening of the new dealerships.”
Winners of the first customers’ prize draw have already been found. On Monday Mr and Mrs Kingdon purchased a brand new 17-plate Toyota RAV4 Hybrid from trainee sales executive Ali Moore. Their RAV4 Hybrid and is due for delivery in March.
Its purchase secured them an overnight stay for two at luxury venue Bovey Castle, with a three course dinner and a full English breakfast. Plus, £150 spending money would be included to enjoy a game of golf or spa treatments.
Maddison said: “I’m delighted to hear that Mr and Mrs Kingdon have purchased a vehicle after attending the opening event, and I’m positive that their RAV4 Hybrid will be a joy to drive for a long time to come. It will be perfect for exploring Dartmoor during their stay at Bovey Castle.”
