Cartime, the Bury independent dealership, has announced a £500,000 investment in a new car collection centre.
The company is aiming to recreate the atmosphere of a luxury airport lounge with a seating area with free-to-use iPads and an open-plan community area with a helpdesk.
The focal point is four glass-enclosed rotating plinths that will serve as display platforms for cars being collected by their buyers.
Owner Matt Kay said: “Our aim with the new collection centre is to enhance the buying experience to a level never-before-seen within a used car dealership.
“It will provide customers with a relaxed and enjoyable way for them to pick up their car once it is ready for collection.”
The centre will create about 15 new jobs.
Construction on the collection centre will begin on the site of the Bell Lane Car Centre, opposite the existing dealership within the next six months, pending planning permission.
