A former Mercedes-Benz dealership has been converted by Motorpoint into its latest car supermarket.
Motorpoint Manchester opened its doors to the public October 1 following a major multi-million-pound refurbishment of the Aston Old Road site, which was vacated by Mercedes franchisee LSH Auto UK.
Motorpoint has created 30 jobs at the Manchester car supermarket, which is located just a short drive from the Etihad Stadium.
Jordan Dean, head of retail operations at Motorpoint Manchester said: “The Motorpoint name is already well-established in the wider region thanks to our existing network of stores in the North-West.
"The opening of our new Manchester branch will bring even greater choice for our customers in the area and fits with our mission to make car buying easy, whether our customers prefer to buy in-store, reserve online or arrange for home delivery.”
The launch of Motorpoint Manchester is being supported over the coming weeks with a regional media campaign across print, outdoor, radio and TV.
"The atmosphere at our opening day was really fantastic. As part of our opening celebration, we gave away scratch cards with a range of prizes available, including gift vouchers, dash cams and meals out in Manchester. We also had a Motorpoint Grand Prix Scalextric with a chance to win a real-life driving experience. Our Manchester team were delighted to give our customers the opportunity to enjoy the Motorpoint car buying experience for themselves including our award-winning combination of choice, value, service and quality.”
