Citroen UK announce the opening of three new retail premises in Slough, Redditch and Letchworth, marking a significant expansion of Citroen’s Retail Group, increasing their number of dealerships to 12 sites across the UK.
The three new openings will join nine other key dealerships owned by the Citroen Retail Group – Hatfield, London West, City (London), Birmingham, Coventry, Manchester, Manchester South, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Slough, where the Company’s Headquarters is based, has been the home of Citroen in the UK for more than 80 years – it was even the site of the original factory which opened in 1926. The new Citroen Slough retail site, which will be officially opened by Gilles Michel, CEO of Citroen, later in the month, is incorporated into Citroen’s UK Headquarters, and, will be employing 40 people who will be managed by Dealer Principal; Nick Harris.
Enhancing Citroen Retail Group’s portfolio even further is the addition of two more dealerships; Citroen Redditch and Citroen Letchworth. These latest additions were already well established Citroen dealerships which have now been adopted by the Company, expanding Citroen Retail Group’s accessibility throughout the UK.
Retail Group Director of Citroen UK, Thierry Calewaert, commented, “The opening of these new dealerships demonstrates the dynamic expansion of the Retail Group, and comes during a very exciting time and key month for car sales. Citroen Slough will be an especially important addition to our flagship premises and we look forward to establishing it as a premier destination for new Citroen customers.”Published 5 September 2008
