WILCOMOTOSAVE TO OPEN IN SWINTON

100_3260An all-new WilcoMotosave depot is set to open.

The Swinton premises is set for an official opening on August 7. Like other stores in the network, the depot will stock a mix of car care and leisure items alongside a number of fitting bays offering tyres, exhausts and servicing.

Paul Green will manage the retail shop and Richard Palmer is to be the manager of the fitting bays. Both men are new to the Shortis Group.

The 4,500sq foot property is a prominent single story corner site on the Chorley Road, Swinton and a busy radius road that was the former A6.

Operations Director Carl Zajac said: “This is a great site and the staff worked hard to get it up and running in 15 days. Hopefully it will be the first of many on this side of the Pennines”

The former car showroom has been refurbished ahead of the launch, with new windows fitted to give an airy shop feel. Fitting bays are on the side of the building.

As is normal with the Shortis organisation the company owns the site as it has purchased the freehold.
