Earlier this year as a group we invested heavily to relocate our Grange-over-Sands Toyota dealership to a new site across the bay in Morecambe. The new centre was built as an extension of our existing Citroen Morecambe centre located on White Lund Industrial Estate. Vantage already had a strong presence in the area with a SKODA centre right around the corner and the Vantage Select used car site also on the industrial estate. The new showroom's and workshop's ,for both Citroen and Toyota, are now completely refurbished, with Citroen being re-branded from John Wilding Citroen to become Vantage Citroen.
The team from Grange-over-Sands, headed up by Brand Manager Emerson Smith, have relocated with the centre to join the team at Toyota Morecambe lead by Andrew Holmes. (Pictured Right) Both teams are excited about their new future, both individually and together, as they look forward to building further relationships with the local people in the Morecambe area.
On Sunday 28th of June the two teams in Morecambe joined together to put on a family fun day for thier customers and all those in the local area to enjoy, in celebration of the brand new joint centre. As well as hosting 'back of house' tours so that visitors could get to know their new Toyota and Citroen facilities, the showroom was transformed into a fun house for all! While the adults enjoyed the new centres and checking out the latest Toyota and Citroen models, there was plenty to keeps the kids entertained including a bouncy castle, a variety of giant games, and fabulous face painting from Beccy. Plus, there was a special appearance from popular local radio station The Bay throughout the day, making it a great day out for all the family.
During the week running up to the event Vantage teamed up with the Bay Radio station to offer one customer the fantastic opportunity to win a nights stay in a lakeside lodge. Andrew, Emerson and the team drew the winner on the day. Mrs M. Paige will be heading off with one lucky guest, in a vehicle supplied by the centre for a night at Cleveley Mere Lakeside Lodges.
