White Dove Škoda has had a presence on Hadfield Road since 1st April 2002 at a temporary location, and in the first week of March moved into their purpose-built site on the same road, holding its official launch on 18th March 2003.
The new retail outlet incorporates many features of Škoda Auto’s latest corporate design, making the showroom a light, spacious and friendly environment in which customers can view cars in the Škoda range.
