Pendragon has opened its first revamped CarStore experience centre in Chesterfield.
CarStore’s hybrid purchase model blends physical and digital locations, giving customers the freedom to buy a car the way they want.
This centre is being billed as a blueprint for future CarStore developments. It has capacity for 400 vehicles.
The site uses environmentally friendly LED lighting powered by solar panels on the roof, has EV charging points, as well as indoor and outdoor handover and all weather Sell-Your-Car bays.
The pet friendly centre features café facilities, seating areas, interactive displays, consultation booths and a visitor lounge. An aftersales facility is being built across the road from the centre.
Mark Akbar, managing director for CarStore, said: “We are really excited that our state-of-the-art Chesterfield Experience Centre is opening.
“We feel our hybrid approach sets us apart from the competition and new centres, like the Chesterfield facility, allow for first-class in person experiences for any customer, no matter their needs.”
CarStore is holding a celebratory weekend on Saturday 21 and 22 May, including new driver day, road safety advice, vehicle demonstrations and a chance to meet British Touring Car Championship racing driver, Ash Hand, who competes in BTCC for CarStore Power Maxed Racing.
