Arnold Clark has opened its new VRE-style Volvo dealership on Aberdeen's Wellington Road.
The showroom, on a property which was previously occupied by a Lidl supermarket, conforms to Volvo's latest Volvo Retail Experience corporate identity, with a 'street' area displaying the cars and a 'lounge' area with Scandinavian furniture and Swedish cakes and coffee.
“We invested in our showroom so that we could give new and existing customers the best experience possible.
“Our recent refurbishment isn’t just about a change of furniture, it’s designed to make our customers feel relaxed and at ease in an environment that provides flexible waiting, working and assessment areas," said David Kane, general manager at Arnold Clark Aberdeen.
The dealership has adopted the Volvo Personal Service programme, which enables service customers to find out directly from the technicians about what work is required on their car.
It has opened two years after Arnold Clark first submitted a planning application for the Lidl site.
The old home of Arnold Clark Volvo Aberdeen, also on Wellington Road, is due to become home to a Mazda franchise, according to ealier reports.
Arnold Clark, ranked 4th in the 2019 AM100, also has dealerships in Aberdeen representing Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and Ford Commercial Vehicles.
