Mo­tor­point to host spe­cial ‘Doggy Day’ this Sun­day in Glas­gow

Event de­signed to help raise funds for char­i­ta­ble part­ner Dog’s Trust

Part of plan to make Mo­tor­point Scot­land’s most dog friendly car re­tailer

Mo­tor­point is aiming to be­come Scot­land’s most dog friendly car dealer. The UK’s largest in­de­pen­dent car re­tailer, which is based on Hamil­ton Road in Glas­gow, re­cently part­nered with the Dog’s Trust in the city. And, to cel­e­brate the part­ner­ship, Mo­tor­point is host­ing its very own ‘Doggy Day’ this Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28 be­tween 12 -4 pm to raise aware­ness of the work of the char­ity as well as give dog own­ers a unique op­por­tu­nity to meet be­havioural ex­perts, vets and groomers. There is also a chance to put your dog through a spe­cial ex­er­cise pro­gramme in the branch. Mo­tor­point also has a ded­i­cated soft play area in the show­room so cus­tomers can leave their dogs while they browse cars. Plus, ev­ery per­son who at­tends the ‘Doggy Day’ will also re­ceive a to­tally pawe-some lim­ited edi­tion Mo­tor­point ‘Doggy’ Bag con­tain­ing treats, toys to­gether with a com­pli­men­tary seat belt har­ness for dogs. Driv­ers are re­quired by the High­way Code to suit­ably re­strain their dog while driv­ing. Fail­ure to do so can at­tract a fine of up to £5,000 for care­less driv­ing. Adam Gil­more, Gen­eral Man­ager of Mo­tor­point Glas­gow, ex­plained: “We are on a drive to be­come Scot­land’s most dog friendly dealer and as part of our sup­port for the Dog’s Trust we’ve de­cided to host a spe­cial Doggy Day this week­end. It prom­ises to be lots of fun for the dogs, and their own­ers. Ev­ery­one who vis­its us this Sun­day will go away with one of our spe­cial ‘Doggy’ bags.” Mo­tor­point opened its newlook Glas­gow show­room in mid-Au­gust af­ter team­ing up with award-win­ning in­te­rior ar­chi­tects BSD As­so­ci­ates to trans­form its popular show­room into a won­der­ful en­vi­ron­ment for car buy­ers to choose, buy and drive away with a low mileage nearly car from 30 dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers on the same day. The new look show­room, which took over two months to cre­ate, boasts a bou­tique style Moto Café, where cus­tomers can choose from a wide se­lec­tion of hot and cold food, Info Points for brows­ing the in­ter­net to­gether with a ded­i­cated Kids Zone.
