New deal­er­ship open­ing in town

Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Kia is to open a new deal­er­ship in the town on the site of the for­mer Luffield Citroen deal­er­ship, which closed in Jan­uary.

Lough­bor­ough Kia is ac­tu­ally based in Mountsor­rel where it started firstly as Skoda deal­ers and Kia deal­ers in 2003.

Oli John­son, op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor, said: “Due to the suc­cess of Kia we’ve been look­ing for a new, big­ger, site for just over a year. The Mountsor­rel site will con­tinue to op­er­ate in­de­pen­dently as a used car sales op­er­a­tion.

“It will be nice to get Lough­bor­ough Kia ac­tu­ally in Lough­bor­ough! Be­ing be­tween VW and Mercedes places us in good com­pany.”

Ren­o­va­tions are un­der­way on the new branch in Bel­ton Road, which will fea­ture a 300 sq m show­room with a six-bay work­shop, and it is hoped it will be open in June.

Asked if the new branch will cre­ate any new jobs, Mr John­son said: “There will cer­tainly be new jobs, more in Mountsor­rel but a cou­ple in Lough­bor­ough are likely too.

“We’re a small fam­ily busi­ness and we make sure we in­stil fam­ily val­ues in all ar­eas of the busi­ness, pro­vid­ing fam­ily-like-care to our cus­tomers.

“We have been recog­nised by Kia glob­ally for our out­stand­ing cus­tomer ser­vice and are con­fi­dent that this will make us stand out in a crowded row of car deal­er­ships in Lough­bor­ough.”
