EUROPE’S largest used car show­room opened for the first time yes­ter­day – and it is lo­cated in Coven­try.

More than 1,000 cars lo­cated at the site just off the A444 and it comes fol­low­ing the trans­for­ma­tion of the for­mer Leekes store which closed last year.

It is Trade Cen­tre UK’s fifth show­room to open, and only the sec­ond out­side of Wales, where the com­pany orig­i­nated from.

Last year, they opened their first branch in Eng­land in Wed­nes­bury, and the suc­cess of this paved the way for the Coven­try show­room just months later.

When the an­nounce­ment came in March, it was con­firmed that over 140 jobs were to be cre­ated at the Coven­try lo­ca­tion, which came along with a pledge to en­gage in com­mu­nity projects in the city.

Fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment, Trade Cen­tre UK Chair­man Mark Bai­ley said: “We are proud and ex­cited to be launch­ing the lat­est Trade Cen­tre UK out­let in Coven­try.

“Thou­sands of Mid­lands car shop­pers each month al­ready choose The Trade Cen­tre UK to pro­vide their new car and we are look­ing for­ward to pro­vid­ing the same great value as we open in Coven­try in May 2018.

“We are very im­pressed with the lo­cal can­di­dates re­cruited so far and look for­ward to wel­com­ing more to the Trade Cen­tre UK team.”
