New Nationwide garage opens in Cornwall

Nationwide Accident Repair Services is celebrating opening the doors of its latest branch in Redruth, Cornwall.

The Fast Fit Plus centre is the third in a chain of wholly owned garages operated by Nationwide. The company says the search for third site began following two successful pilot garages in Kettering and Leicester.

The Nationwide Fast Fit Plus garages offer tyres, MOTs, servicing and all of the traditional fast fit options motorists have come to expect, plus body and glass repairs.

The Redruth branch, as with the existing two garages, is attached alongside a Nationwide Repair Centre branch with renewed branding and signage.

Nationwide is hoping its £200,000 pound investment in the new site on the Pool Industrial Estate in Redruth will pay off in local business. Indeed, the company already reports it has attracted fleet and retail customers in the local area.

Nationwide territory manager for Devon and Cornwall Colin Bater said: “Redruth is the most southerly Nationwide Repair Centre in the UK and is a tremendously successful branch for the organisation, with steady growth and consistently excellent customer care feedback.

“The business already has a loyal customer base in the area, including many local businesses, and it is ideally placed to attract passing traffic so it made sense to give the site a more obvious retail appeal and broader offering.”
